This week, Vince Cable announced 40 new apprenticeship schemes, including 6 focused on the IT / Digital sector:
- Software Developer
- Network Engineer
- Software Tester
- Digital Marketer
- Cyber Intrusion Analyst
- Digital Media Technology Practitioner
These schemes are a collaboration between professional bodies, large and small employers to ensure the highest possible standard of training and development.
We see this is a really positive step taken to tackle the ever worsening and ever more business critical digital skills gap in the UK. Hopefully there are plenty of firms across the country that are in a position to take advantage of what appears at first glance to be some pretty good schemes.
