An apprenticeship can be a great way to kick start your climb up the career ladder and help you gain real world experience as well as a qualification. Tech is constantly evolving and is so fast paced, companies are constantly looking for new, exciting minds to join their teams. With a tech apprenticeship, you can achieve a rewarding career by skipping years of studying and financial debt!

Self-taught skills

If you spend your own time developing your knowledge, you’ll have a number of transferrable skills which can be applied in the workplace. Having self-taught skills also shows you have a keen interest in a particular topic and are committed to learning more.

There are several free resources you can use to develop your skills further. If you’re interested in software development, Code Academy will improve your knowledge. You can use Google Digital Garage to excel in a digital marketing role, or if you are interested in IT, Instructables will help you to develop your understanding.

Apprenticeships are a great way of turning your passion into a career. Your hobbies and interests could help you decide which programme is perfect for you.
