Diversify your talent pipeline with more women, people of color, veterans, disabled, and LGBTQ candidates. Reap the benefits of home-growing your talent through apprenticeships — you’ll get higher productivity and nail retention. Hungry, talented apprentices are standing by!

Leverage Your Existing Talent Programs

If your business already has an internship program or formal mentorship culture, aligning it with Apprenticeship will maximize your benefits. Apprenticeships allows forward-thinking businesses to leverage existing recruitment and professional development investments, and will augment your talent search and learning & development strategies in the following ways:

  • Provide new, non-traditional pre-screened candidates referrals
  • Pay for and provide supplemental classroom instruction
  • Create alternative career pathways, professional growth and retention
  • incentives for your existing apprentices and interns
  • Maximize your diversity & inclusion efforts

Looking to promote someone already on staff? Convert them to apprenticeship and receive national recognition, administrative fees ($2500) and supplemental training opportunities. This is the way we raise the floor!

Promote Current Staff

BAVC Media Apprenticeships

Did you know you can leverage the training stipends available through the TechSF Apprenticeship Program to promote your current staff?

Investing in the continued growth of your staff through training is good for business. Training is a leading indicator for higher retention rates and therefore, reducing costly turnover.

Upon achieving the competencies outlined for the promotion, the employee must receive a wage increase (no restrictions on the amount). BAVC Media will provide the same level of support as with the registration of program and your company may be reimbursed for up to $2,500. You are not required to pay your employee for training that occurs outside of business hours.


How It Works

The team at Bay Area Video Coalition provides concierge-level support through all the phases of program–from recruitment to help with creating the training plan to registering the program in the DOL database, so that your company can reap the benefits. We’re here to make the registration process as seamless as possible.
