Discover IT & cyber apprenticeships at free webinar for employers

Gloucestershire College's Business Hub team is hosting a free webinar for employers next week (25th November) to discover the specialist IT and cyber apprenticeships available at GC, including the brand new degree programmes.

Gloucestershire College is training future IT and cyber specialists through apprenticeships and can help businesses develop the tech talent they need in-house.

Join the GC Business Hub webinar to discover the specialist IT apprenticeship programmes suitable for businesses of any size and sector.

With new government incentive payments of up to £3,000 per apprentice hired, there has never been a better time for businesses to recruit a new team member.

Julie Tegg, director of apprenticeships and employer training at Gloucestershire College, will be hosting the webinar with Myra Billinghurst, head of the GC Business Hub team. Together, Julie and Myra have a wealth of experience, knowledge and advice to offer local employers to maximise the benefits of apprenticeships.

Julie Tegg said: "Apprenticeships are open to anyone aged 16 or over and are not just for school leavers or entry level qualifications. Even experienced professionals can use apprenticeships to train and learn new technical skills. Our IT and cyber apprenticeships range from Level 3 to degrees in specialised areas, meaning your business can find the perfect fit for your requirements.

"Paid for by your apprenticeship levy, or either 100 per cent or 95 per cent funded through the government, apprenticeships are a very affordable way to train both your current staff and new recruits. Apprenticeships are proven to increase productivity, motivation and morale among your staff. With the new incentive payments of up to £3,000 per apprentice hired, it's a win-win for businesses in these unprecedented times."

Gloucestershire College's IT and cyber apprenticeship programmes include:

If your business is looking to recruit an apprentice, don't delay. Employers are urged to be quick as they must hire before 31st January 2021 to qualify for the new funding. Contact the GC Business Hub team today to get the ball rolling: business.hub@glosocol.ac.uk
