Steve Wozniak, the Apple co-founder who changed the world alongside Steve Jobs, has today announced the launch of Woz U.
According to the release, Woz U will start as an online learning platform focused on both students and companies that will eventually hire those students. Woz U is based out of Arizona, and be available to launch physical locations for learning in more than 30 cities across the globe.
At launch, the curriculum will center around computer assistance experts and software developers, with courses on data science, mobile applications and cybersecurity coming in the future.
Alongside the education platform, Woz U will likewise give platforms for tech companies to recruit, teach and retain their workforce through on-site customized programs and subscription-based syllabu. There also will be a platform for K-1 2 students, which will be distributed to school districts, that will give STEAM programs to identify flair and nudge those individuals into a tech-based career.
And if that weren’t enough, Woz U will eventually introduce an accelerator program “to identify and develop upper-class tech talent.”
Here’s what Woz had to say in a prepared statement 😛 TAGEND
Our goal is to educate and teach people in employable digital skills without putting them into years of indebtednes. People often are afraid to choose a technology-based job since they are think they can’t do it. I know they can, and I want to show them how. My entire life I have worked to build, develop and create a better world through engineering and I have always respected education. Now is the time for Woz U, and we are only getting started.
Woz U will give an app to help people understand which realm of tech they’re best suited for, so they can set up their curriculum accordingly.
As of yet, there’s no word on pricing.
