Investing in the Brightest Futures

An apprenticeship scheme is something special. By arranging semi-professional employment for the youth of today, B-ITEC provides for the future of our country.

Our apprenticeships include the most critical areas of business such as administration, customer services and I.T. Through screening and vetting the promising youth of today, we allow businesses the chance to witness for themselves the value of a young and open mind in the workplace.

B-ITEC’s experienced staff can work with your business, identifying areas where the support of an apprentice is most needed. Through collaboration, both your business and your apprentice can shine.

Interested in recruiting young people?

We offer young people/trainees a start in their chosen area of work by providing training in a semi-professional environment.  The qualification and training equips them for clerical and administrative roles and I.T. Support, build/repair, software development roles.

We will advertise and monitor your vacancy and conduct first interviews.   We run pre employment workshops to prepare the applicant for employment.

For I.T. apprenticeship recruitment we run a City and Guilds Traineeship – employability skills with technical I.T.  that leads into a City and Guilds I.T., Software, Web and Telecoms Professional apprenticeship.

Seven weeks, at our centre, developing employability skills such as: work place etiquette,  working as a team, appropriate use of their mobile telephone and business telephone skills and I.T such as:   Using a ticket system, Customer Support including telephone skills, installing software,  maintaining systems,  building a laptop and server,  understanding networks,  intro to: HTML and Visual Basics.

Work experience (six weeks) is then offered by an employer (through interviews), where the trainee can complete their Traineeship and hopefully progress onto employment and a full Apprenticeship in technical I.T.

Interested in work based qualifications?

Apprenticeships are work based qualifications that will upskill existing staff in Administration, Customer Service and I.T.

If you have employees who are changing roles or need to improve and learn additional skills, or who would like acknowledgement of their achievements and competency, these qualifications will feed into Continual Personal Development and support IIP.

Apprenticeships take a minimum of 366 days, up to 18 months. An assessor will visit the apprentice at their place of work and the apprentices will be required to attend ITEC's centre for workshops/study.

The qualification is government funded for age 16-18 but is available to all ages*. Currently, we are required to ask for a contribution for anyone 19-23 and there are loans for 24+. This is changing and we are waiting for this new government legislation.
