Appleseeds' Startech cutting-edge school based in our new Ramla Hub addresses the most prominent issue in the Israeli hi-tech industry- a severe lack of trained technology workers. Startech places disadvantaged diverse populations (young adults from underserved communities, women, Ethiopians, Arab, Bedouin & those aged 40+) from Israel's periphery into the "hottest" jobs in the tech sector. The Appleseeds Ramla Hub provides leading-edge facilities for Startech and Appleseeds' innovative programs
As the Israeli hi-tech sector continues to flourish, leading tech companies & government offices are concerned with the lack of skilled workers to fill positions. With thousands of open positions, the government & tech companies are looking to export jobs or import workers, mainly due to the lack of skilled human capital within Israel. This is because under-served populations in Israel's periphery rarely obtain access to STEM education in high school, to higher education, or tech training.
Startech places socially disadvantaged diverse populations in the "hottest" jobs in the thriving Israeli tech sector, in partnership with a coalition of leading hi-tech companies. Startech offers three different "schools" based on immediate recruitment industry needs including a set of preparatory programs, & hi-tech experts serving as teachers to bring economic mobility to diverse populations. The current cohort consists of the following schools: DevOps, Online Marketing, & Coding to Mobile.
Startech will provide cutting-edge training and job placements to 90 underserved beneficiaries from the socioeconomic periphery. Its long-term impact is to create a model for marginalized populations that will be adopted by the Israeli government as a solution for the hi-tech placement needs.
