As a demand-driven workforce development organization, NPower Canada’s top priority is to align its programs with the needs of the marketplace, equipping diverse young adults with the skills most valued by employers.
To achieve this goal, the NPower Canada Industry Council was established in November 2015. The Industry Council is comprised of leaders from a variety of organizations that employ junior IT talent across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Information gathered at bi-monthly meetings helps to inform the NPower Canada curriculum and ensures that NPower Canada participants are equipped with in-demand technical and professional skills.
NPower Canada has offered Accenture an alternative source of talent. Their graduates demonstrate humility and prove that giving non-traditional candidates a chance can lead to great employees. If we want to attract the best, then we should be pulling people from everywhere.
