At YBS, we’ve created the kind of workplace where anyone can achieve anything. If you can think it, imagine it, believe it, learn it, change it, and live it… you can do it. Not just for us. But for your skills, your community, your society, and your future.
That’s what makes our Apprenticeship opportunities really stand out. And right now we’re looking for people to join us on our 3 year Level 6 IT & Digital Apprenticeship Programme.
It’s a fantastic way to mix learning and development with hands-on work and real-life projects. You’ll earn at the same time, too. And because we see you as one of our future leaders, we’ll make sure you have everything you need to complete the programme, gain a BSc (Hons) in Digital & Technology Solutions, before choosing from a range of roles and opportunities across our IT and Digital teams.
About the Programme
You’ll spend your first two years working with our Systems Administration team where you’ll help look after our hardware, operating systems and other software. And with our Software Development team, where you’ll help design, build, test, implement and support new systems and infrastructure. All while building valuable skills in Information Systems, Systems Development, Data, Cyber Security, Business Organisation, IT Project Management, Computer and Network Infrastructure, and more.
Finally, you’ll use your third year to specialise in the area that best suits your skills and ambitions. So when it comes to shaping this apprenticeship into the kind of career you really want, we’ll give you the green light to imagine it, do it, and love it.
To join the programme, you’ll need to be over 18 with lots of motivation, a dedicated approach to solving problems, an interest or experience in IT, and education to A Level standard in relevant subjects. And whether you’re fresh out of education, or you’re looking for a career change, you’ll have our supportive and inclusive culture behind you every step of the way. Whoever you are and whatever your background.
