Internet organisation Nominet has launched an Apprenticeship Scheme, aimed at encouraging school leavers into a career in software and infrastructure.
The not-for-profit company is offering its Nominet Apprentice Scheme for between 12 and 14 months, focusing on learning and on-the job training. Apprentices will work with technical teams, a line manger and a workplace mentor to enable the students to learn how real-world projects fit into Nominet’s everyday operations.
After completion of the programme the apprentices will sit up to six exams, to achieve qualifications endorsed by Oracle and Microsoft.
Gill Crowther, Nominet’s HR director, said: “We’re absolutely committed to developing skills and talent across the UK’s technology based industries, and our apprenticeship scheme is the perfect option for school leavers who want to get ahead in software and infrastructure.
“Opportunities to work on real world projects at this level are actually quite rare, and when you also add our informal, tech-focused, and exciting environment into the mix, it becomes clear that ours is among the most attractive apprenticeship schemes in the UK.”
