Tuesday, 25 October 2022 | Alphabet Inc.’s Google and Israel’s Reichman University have established a school to train high-tech professionals. The school will offer courses in computer programming, sales and data analysis, among other subjects, the university said on Monday.
“We believe that a variety of voices, opinions and perspectives enriches Israeli high-tech and its developments,” said Barak Regev, managing director of Google Israel.
Although Israel has a thriving high-tech sector, a significant shortage of experienced tech professionals has resulted in tens of thousands of open job offerings.
The School of High Tech in Herzliya, north of Tel Aviv, will subsidize students from various communities “including women, the ultra-Orthodox, Arabs, members of the Ethiopian community and people from the geosocial periphery and disadvantaged socioeconomic groups,” the university said.
Courses will be introduced over the next weeks and students who complete them will receive credit towards a degree, the university announced. The program will include core academic studies.
