Innovate Birmingham partnership creates pathway to tech jobs

A program called the Innovate Birmingham Regional Workforce Partnership will deploy $6 million in federal funding to train young adults in Alabama’s largest metro area for 925 high-paying technology-focused jobs.

The Innovate Birmingham partnership is supported by a broad coalition of business, community and education leaders who are committed to spurring economic growth in the region and improving opportunities for young adults.

The funding comes from a U.S. Department of Labor program that aims to connect Americans to tuition-free education and in-demand jobs. Training in Birmingham is expected to begin in spring 2017.

“The main focus of this effort is to offer new educational opportunities for the young adults in our community to provide them with training and expertise that will enable them to have prosperous, bright futures,” said Dr. Ray Watts, president of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB).
