Our ICT apprenticeship programme encompasses three distinct pathways, allowing you to align the chosen pathway with your specific business requirements. Each pathway offers unique expertise and skills that cater to different facets of your organisation.

Networking is the backbone of the vast majority of infrastructure. We make sure our apprentices have a strong understanding of networking concepts such as OSI, Routing and IP.

legislation and risk management

Legislation and Risk Management

Alongside technical skills, we ensure apprentices have a strong understanding of legislation such as GDPR and the safe handling of data. We also teach them the basics of Project Management and how to conduct Risk Assessments.

devices & troubleshooting

Devices and Troubleshooting

Whether it is a bespoke system, or a common setup, we teach the apprentices how to logically troubleshoot devices. From being able to gather and interpret logs, to recording and analysing network traffic.

Embrace an ICT apprentice and expand your business! Here's how:

Digital apprentices bring fresh perspectives and a wealth of up-to-date knowledge regarding emerging technologies and digital trends.

Fresh perspective and enthusiasm - inspire other team members to embrace technological advancements, adapt to new software tools, and embrace digital transformation.

"Our apprentices have been immersed in the business from the very beginning, and the tailored training means we can mould their paths to align with our exact business goals." - Communicate Technology
