What is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is work based training that can be used to upskill current staff or develop the skills of new recruits, enabling them to earn while they learn, gaining essential skills and achieving a nationally recognised qualification.

This qualification helps apprentices develop the knowledge and competency skills required to work in a range of IT professional and technical roles.

This programme is designed to provide Apprentices with a wealth of knowledge and transferable skills to enable them to manage technical content, create software applications, build website and test applications before they are released.
