Student Opportunities - Apprenticeship 

C4ITA and City Colleges of Chicago are recruiting both students and employers for an Accelerated Software Engineering Apprenticeship Program (ASEAP).

ASEAP is a multi-year employer-sponsored “earn while you learn” apprenticeship program designed to simultaneously develop diverse software and product talent while improving social equity in Chicago neighborhoods.

Students attend college for free, sponsored by our local employer partners, while simultaneously earning money working for the sponsoring employer to apply those skills.

Chicago Apprenticeship Network
Earn while you learn. Avoid heavy student debt. Pave a pathway to a promising career and a brighter future. It’s all possible through apprenticeship.

The Chicago Apprentice Network is working to bridge the gap by raising awareness of apprenticeship and helping more businesses establish successful apprentice programs to offer more opportunities to more people in Chicagoland.

Since 2017, the Chicago Apprentice Network has grown from three founding companies – Accenture, Aon and Zurich North America – to more than 40 companies across multiple industries.

Our members include forward-thinking employers and apprentices who represent diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. Together, we’re fueling innovation, inclusion and excitement in Chicago’s economy.
