This summer, change is coming to Baltic Apprenticeships as we launch a series of exciting updates to our digital and tech apprenticeship programmes.
The Institute for Apprenticeships have released brand new Apprenticeship Standards for some of our most popular programmes, including IT, software and data.
At Baltic, we're huge fans of change. In an ever-evolving digital sector, it's exciting to see these new standards reflecting the skills and knowledge that our employers are looking to cultivate in their teams.
As we welcome the new standards, we've also taken the opportunity to make a few extra improvements to our curriculum. We've boosted our training offer on each new programme with courses that take learning beyond the Apprenticeship Standard. We've also optimised the way we deliver our programmes, meaning our learners can do much more, more quickly.
We hope you're as excited about these new programmes as we are!
In June 2021, new Apprenticeship Standards were released for the following programmes:
One of the biggest changes currently in motion is the retirement of the Level 3 Infrastructure Technician Apprenticeship Standard. This apprenticeship was launched in 2016 and has been one of our most popular programmes, kickstarting careers for hundreds of IT apprentices.
While we wave goodbye to this programme, we can wait to welcome its successors!
These two programmes follow the new Information Communications Technician Apprenticeship Standard, but are delivered through two different training routes.
Alongside some shared modules which establish an excellent foundation of IT knowledge, these programmes offer specialist training and work-based projects to align with either an IT Support or Network Technician role.
These exciting courses have been developed to create expert IT professionals with exceptional problem-solving skills. Through our mix of training and support, we empower apprentices to unlock their potential and develop confidence alongside detailed technical knowledge.
We've been busy making some exciting adjustments to optimise our training experience, including:
These programme updates are the most substantial changes to our course list since the move from Apprenticeship Frameworks to Standards. To find out more, browse our programme pages and download your detailed course outline for the full curriculum detail.
While we're sure that you're going to love our new courses and enhanced delivery approach, our team are always happy to talk our employers through the changes in more detail so that you can be confident that our apprenticeships will continue to fulfil your training and development needs. Please get in touch to arrange a call.
