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.

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.
