Information technology CTE Programs customized to fit your needs
Educators, from middle school to college, face the daunting task of helping students find a career path and then transition into a fulfilling career. At the same time, demand for information technology (IT) work-based learning opportunities outstrips supply.
MAXX Potential offers students career exploration, preparation and transition into high paying IT jobs through our unique set of programs tuned over the past decade. We work with schools to deliver these solutions through their existing CTE programs and curriculum.
Career Lab provides high quality IT career awareness and hands-on exploration to students starting as early as middle school. These workshops cover topics such as software development, data and analytics, cybersecurity, networking and hardware and quality assurance.
Our answer to the dearth of internship opportunities, this simulated work environment emulates a real-world company’s technology team facing contemporary scenarios. We reduce the hassle and complexity of managing in-person internships by bringing the experience to you. Students build their professional vocabulary, learn to collaborate, get valuable experience for their resumé, and strong answers to the common interview question:
“Give me an example of when . . .”
Graduates with qualified exposure to our Career Lab or Simulator are eligible to apply to the MAXX Potential Apprenticeship program. In addition to invaluable experience, this no-cost program provides Apprentices with a full-time wage and ongoing mentorship by experienced IT industry professionals.
Our expert team will meet with you to better understand the prior learning experience and aptitude of your student population. We have successfully implemented work-based learning experiences from the middle school to the collegiate level. We will adjust the difficulty of work scenarios to ensure there is a “just-right” level of struggle and stretch. It is important to us that all students get as authentic an experience as possible.
Then, we will customize the program to fit your students’ needs.
MAXX Potential’s work-based learning experiences are easily customizable and can be as light as a classroom visit to an immersive semester-long, multi-role and resumé-worthy work experience. Generally, the cost for the program will depend on some of the following design choices.
How many students will be participating?
Will MAXX Potential be providing professional development, a facilitator or both?
Will it be a standardized or private-label solution?
What level of customization is required?
