Apprenticeships in the Bay Area

Since 2015, BAVC Media has partnered with OEWD’s TechSF program to bring apprenticeships to the Bay Area tech sector.

We believe it’s a model that works for media and tech-focused companies of all sizes, and have seen first-hand how it brings in employees from diverse backgrounds who are eager to learn – giving them access to occupations they might not otherwise have been able to break into.

Why choose TechSF Apprenticeships?
  • Diversify your talent pipeline
  • Develop and promote existing talent
  • Increase staff retention
  • Leverage existing professional development programs
  • Pay apprentices at 60% market rate while they train

Apprenticeships have a 98% conversion rate (from apprentice to full-time permanent).
