As the digital revolution continues, many of today’s most common jobs are evolving as a rapid pace as technology advances. Similarly, a lot of new, previously unheard-of jobs are starting to emerge, and it’s important that as the next generation of job seekers, young people are equipped with the skills needed to make the most of these exciting opportunities.

Statistics from the national careers service say that 90% of new, emerging jobs require digital skills of some kind, and 72% of UK employers are unwilling to even interview candidates who don’t have the right level of IT knowledge. This means that thousands of jobs are left unfilled, as many otherwise promising candidates don’t have the right skills or experience to step into a digital role.

But with an IT apprenticeship, you can get the skills you need to future-proof your career through training and qualifications.

IT apprenticeships deliver the skills that school, college and university leavers need to help businesses grow in an increasingly digital world.
