Why hire an IT apprentice? Free event

How much do you know about IT apprenticeships?

Did you know you can access £10,000s of training for your staff, funded by the Government? Or that you can use apprenticeships to up-skill your current employees, as well as to hire new staff? Maybe you've heard lots of great things about hiring apprentices, but don't know where to start?

Join Firebrand Training and the British Computer Society (BCS) at this free event during National Apprenticeships Week, as we explain how IT Apprenticeships work. We're joined by leaders in IT and Government, as they explain the benefits of hiring apprentices – and answer all your questions.

The line-up includes:

  • Why the Government is backing apprenticeships – Andrew Jones MP, Government Apprenticeships Ambassador: See why the Government has committed £millions of apprenticeship funding to UK businesses, and how this is being used to help those businesses grow.
  • What’s it like hiring an apprentice? – Dominic Gill, Microsoft Apprenticeships Lead: Dominic will chair a panel discussion with employers and their apprentices, including Microsoft Apprentice Ambassadors. Learn from their experiences, and ask any questions about the programmes and processes. You’ll also hear how and why 1,000s of employers use Microsoft’s official programme.
  • Get support from the Tech Partnership – John Pritchard; Apprenticeships, Standards and Quality: See how the Tech Partnership is helping tech businesses such as Capgemini and Visa grow through IT apprenticeships. Plus, find out how the Government’s Trailblazers initiative helps you train and / or hire staff, and build your own apprenticeship programme.
  • How IT Apprenticeships really work – Adrian Davies, Firebrand Operations Manager: What will your apprentice learn? How do you access £10,000s in Government funding? What do future programmes look like – such as cyber security and Microsoft Dynamics?

There's limited seating at this free event so sign-up now to see how apprenticeships will grow your business.
