IBM launches apprenticeship scheme for school leavers

IBM has launched its first apprenticeship scheme in England aimed at school leavers, in time for the announcement of this year's A-level results.

The scheme, developed in collaboration with sector skills council E-Skills UK, offers 20 apprenticeships for students looking to go straight into work rather than go to university. It forms part of IBM's strategy to develop its current and future workforce.

"IBM sees apprenticeships as an excellent way of developing the skills of our future workforce, and we are excited to be launching this new programme," said IBM's professional development manager Parviz Daneshvar.

The apprenticeships offer a two-year development programme and promise long-term career prospects on completion. Opportunities also exist in IBM's global business services unit and application management functions.
