Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak has formed Woz U to reprogram tech education and address skills gaps.
Woz U is designed to get people into the workforce quickly and affordably, creating financial stability for new tech workers.
Arizona-based Woz U launched with programmes online, and plans to add campuses in over 30 cities around the world.
“Our goal is to educate and train people in employable digital skills without putting them into years of debt,” said Wozniak.
Woz U has created a mobile app to help match people with the technology-based career best suited for them.
Current programs will train computer support specialists and software developers, with data science, mobile applications, and cybersecurity courses coming soon.
All Woz U programmes incorporate the latest technologies and skills in high demand by tech employers, and include comprehensive career services.
