Skills to Jobs Tech Alliance
A global coalition that addresses the skills gap and prepares learners for in-demand tech jobs.
Introducing the Tech Alliance
The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Skills to Jobs Tech Alliance (Tech Alliance) brings together a coalition of Fortune 500 companies and other employers, government agencies around the world, workforce development organizations, and education leaders to address the skills gap in community college and university curricula. Working together, the Tech Alliance better prepares learners for entry-level tech careers in areas such as cloud support, software development, and data analysis. Launched in June 2023, the initiative currently focuses on three priority regions in the United States (Illinois, New York, and Washington) as well as Egypt, Germany, Italy, Singapore, and Spain.
Strong collaboration between industry and education
Through the unique collaborative effort of the Tech Alliance, educational institutions can integrate industry expertise into their programs of study, while employers get access to a pipeline of job-ready talent. To better align curricula to in-demand jobs, AWS, employer talent shapers, and educational institutions collaboratively design and vet skills maps that identify the critical skills and competencies that learners need to develop. Talent shapers provide additional support by evaluating curricula, developing capstone projects, providing internships and apprenticeships, and participating in hiring events exclusive to Tech Alliance educational institutions. Learners in the alliance gain access to hands-on support from industry professionals and can enroll in courses that are applicable to in-demand tech jobs.
The AWS Skills to Jobs Tech Alliance will boost career readiness for learners and modernize tech programs of study across 78 educational institutions collectively serving more than 380,000 learners globally.
