As an IT Practitioner Apprentice, you could be working in a range of possible businesses or companies. You could be working as a support technician setting up new equipment or upgrading existing systems or you could be working on a helpdesk helping customers over the phone or email to identify and troubleshoot problems or faults. Alternatively you might be working in field operations where you will be travelling to customer sites to install, connect, maintain, test and repair equipment and services. Some apprentices might work for a web site design company helping to design and create websites for clients. All jobs will require you to have good people skills as well as the technical skills you’ll gain during your Apprenticeship.
The primary role of a software developer is to build and test simple, high-quality code across front end, logic and database layers. The developer will need to be able to interpret design documentation and specifications. Typically delivered over 2 years, the Software Developer Apprenticeship is ideal for those about to leave school or college and who want to start practical, hands-on training rather than go to university. It may also be a suitable course for anyone looking to retrain or make their interest in the field a career. This apprenticeship is recognised for entry onto the register of IT Technicians confirming SFIA Level 3 professional competence, and upon completion you will be eligible for registration.
