Apprentice Pathway Program

Let’s create economic opportunity for all

Talent is everywhere, but opportunity is not. This is why we built the Apprentice Pathway Program, a workforce development program that provides apprenticeships to job seekers from nontraditional backgrounds. Together, we can change the way the world hires.

The Sony Interactive Entertainment Apprentice Pathway Program offers a 6-month contract job in the U.S. and Canada. The aim is to help individuals from nontraditional backgrounds pivot to a career in tech. We work with training organizations (such as Year-Up, Techtonica, District Arts + Education and GameHeads) that offer training and support to bridge the opportunity gap for many.

Our vision is to help talented, motivated job seekers secure lasting employment in the tech field.
