IT Higher Apprenticeships

Want a career in IT?
Start with a Higher Apprenticeship

If you want an exciting and rewarding career in IT, Higher Apprenticeships are a new way to get the experience and qualifications you need, while earning a salary. They’re ideal for school and college leavers aged 18 or over.

IT Higher Apprenticeships – the basics

You’ll be employed by an organisation that has technology at its heart, but also train for recognised qualifications. From day one, you’ll use your new skills to tackle real business tasks in the workplace.

Because IT Higher Apprenticeships have been designed by e-skills UK and are endorsed by Government and major organisations, they give you the experience and qualifications employers want today.

So, once your Apprenticeship is complete, you’ll be on the road to a successful IT career – Apprentices earn, on average, £100,000 more over their working lives than those who only have A levels.
