OpenDrupal aims to open new doors into Drupal. It can be difficult to start a career as a Drupal developer, and many young people aren’t aware it’s an option. With cooperation from developers, educators and the community, we can create high quality, free and Open Source training materials to make it easier to run effective Drupal training programmes.
Let’s make it easier to become part of the Drupal community, encourage and enable companies to invest in Apprenticeships, Internships and Training, and work together, sharing knowledge and setting standards.

We've started prototyping a curriculum in Google Drive, here: https://docs.google.com/folder/d/0ByiysEQCBIteU3Q4eU1JT01PcEU/edit
Please do not post job adverts in this group. This group is about creating training programmes, and nobody will look here for job adverts. You can use the Drupal Jobs group here: http://groups.drupal.org/drupal-jobs
