Discovery Partners Institute partnered with Cognizant, a Fortune 200 company, and City Colleges of Chicago to create a pre-apprenticeship program, heavily focused on Java, which would lead to an opportunity to interview for a Full Stack Developer Apprenticeship position at Cognizant. Fifteen people, who met the criteria, were selected and started the program. This past quarter, thirteen of the original fifteen selected successfully completed the program, making them eligible for the apprenticeship opportunity.
