Ideal if

An Apprenticeship is a job with an accompanying skills development programme designed by employers in the sector. It allows the apprentice to gain technical knowledge and real practical experience, along with functional and personal skills, required for their immediate job and future career. These are acquired through a mix of learning in the workplace, formal off the job training and the opportunity to practice and embed new skills in a real work context. This broader mix differentiates the Apprenticeship experience from training delivered to meet narrowly focused job needs.

On completion of the Apprenticeship the apprentice must be able to undertake the full range of duties, in the range of circumstances appropriate to the job, confidently and competently to the standard set by the industry.

What to expect

The delivery will be done mainly at the workplace, with the off-the-job training accounting for at least 20% of your employed time. You will receive a login to an online portfolio. The assessor will regularly visit you at work to observe you performing relevant tasks and to carry out professional discussions.

The framework includes a balance of content in technical, business and interpersonal areas, designed to ensure apprentices have an appropriate set of skills to operate in today’s IT & Telecoms job roles. The technical content includes units for Software Development, Web Development, Technical Support, Telecommunications and Databases. In addition the apprenticeship supports ‘vendor’ and industry recognised content from organisations such as Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, VM Ware and CompTIA.

The knowledge component (or technical certificate) will be taught in an off-the-job setting.
