Software company SAP is partnering with a New York City school to help prepare students for information technology jobs.


The school, which was not named, was one of 16 winners in a statewide competition to form public-private partnerships that will provide nearly 6,000 students with a high school diploma, college degree and pathway to a job, according to an announcement from the governor’s office.


The program, NYS Pathways in Technology Early College High School (NYS P-TECH), is set to launch in fall 2014 and was modeled on IBM’s Pathways in Technology Early College High School, or P-TECH, which opened in 2011 in Brooklyn.


Under the program, students will receive training for jobs in the technology, manufacturing and healthcare sectors, can earn an associate’s degree at no cost, and get an opportunity to land jobs with participating companies when they graduate.


In New York City, SAP will develop a curriculum with New York City's Department of Education and the City University of New York.


New York State is the first in the nation to implement a statewide “P-TECH” initiative that links education to regional economic development, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.


"We are making sure our students are more prepared for life after graduation by linking the skills we teach in the classroom with the needs of 21st century employers," Cuomo said in a statement. "This groundbreaking program will give students across the state the opportunity to earn a college degree without taking on significant debt from student loans while also starting on a pathway to a good-paying job when they graduate."
