As a part of our #InspiringFutureApprentices campaign we are exploring ‘hidden jobs’ in areas that you may not have considered and we have some great real life examples through some of our current apprentices.
Some qualifications can have an old-fashioned reputation that may put you off pursuing a role within the sector and we are here to break the mould and put the excitement into something that you may have considered ‘boring’ or not considered at all.
This is the final week and we are looking at the possibilities of an IT Apprenticeship
