NEW YORK (PRWEB) November 17, 2017
“The University of Pennsylvania is a leader in fostering innovation and workforce development in the Philadelphia region. In the last 12 months, the Philadelphia metro area had thousands of open positions that required web development skills. This mirrors the trends we’re seeing across the country as web development skills continue to play an essential role in professional success throughout the digital economy,” said Dan Sommer, CEO and Founder of Trilogy. “We are proud to partner with Penn and support their workforce acceleration efforts.”
Students who complete the program will receive a certificate of completion from Penn Arts and Sciences, and will also receive career-planning services, portfolio reviews, recruiting assistance and extensive staff support. In addition to classroom instruction, students will spend around 20 hours a week on outside projects and experiential learning activities.
Penn Arts and Sciences Coding Boot Camp’s Academic Director, Dr. Robert Hollebeek explained, "Coding is becoming an essential skill for the workplace, and our new Boot Camp provides intensive training for those with little or no experience that leads to expert skills. The timing of the classes is optimized for working adults and is accompanied by career services that can provide new employment opportunities. There are so many books, techniques, and languages that it’s hard to find a path to the kind of skills that are needed in the local employment market. This course facilitates that path.”
Classes will take place at Pennovation, located at 3401 Grays Ferry Ave in Philadelphia. “The Pennovation Center on campus is designed to bridge education with real-world innovation opportunities,” said Rita McGlone, Executive Director of Penn Arts and Sciences’ Professional and Organizational Development. “With their curriculum and focus on teaching the most in-demand skill sets, regionalized for local economies, Trilogy’s approach is very much aligned with Penn’s.”
In addition to web development, Trilogy has recently expanded to include programs in Data Analytics & Visualization as well as User Experience/User Interface (UX/UI) Design.
