What is an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a way for people to gain the skills and experience they need to enter a particular career. Apprenticeships combine on-the-job training with an academic element, which will include achieving industry recognised certificates.
Apprenticeship programmes are designed by industry, and allow employers to develop new employees in particular job roles. Within our sector these job roles can include:
- Desktop Support
- Hardware installation
- Web design
- Software development
and many others...
Benefits – why apprenticeships?
Wage costs compare well to other recruitment routes – apprentices are paid a minimum of £100 per week.
Loyalty to company
Apprenticeships are likely to generate loyalty to your company among your trainees.
Understanding of technology
Apprentices bring an innate understanding of technology to your organisation.
Your apprentices will gain a deep understanding of your organisational culture early on in their career.
