Working closely with businesses we’ve designed our apprenticeships and training courses to ensure a direct return on the investment in individuals. Our programme/course content is developed for learners to achieve competencies in core skills relevant to specific IT and digital roles.
We deliver our apprenticeships and training courses through interactive instructor-led online learning work-based sessions via Microsoft Teams. These act as a virtual classroom conducted within the workplace with a fully qualified trainer. The work-based sessions are supplemented by face-to-face meetings with learners and employers periodically to see how they are getting on with their studies. Our apprenticeship programmes are structured into four components below designed to map skills, knowledge, behaviours to the apprenticeship standard and assess the quality of learning outcomes.
