Cutting-edge technology flows from the innovation and pioneering spirit of a highly competent workforce, we have invested heavily in our Technical, Software, Manufacturing, Business and Secretarial Apprenticeships.

You will also be involved in real projects, gaining an insight into how a highly successful company operates. 

These learners are reaping the rewards from working within a leading technology provider, whilst developing their own skill set and professional qualifications for their future careers. The company boasts a current retention rate that has seen 95% of UK apprentices stay with the company at the end of their schemes.

The OFSTED verdict reflects the high level of learning and career development offered to learners undertaking apprenticeship programmes. *(Ref OFSTED report 333554 – Overall grade 1 = Outstanding).
