From higher wages to securing your future career, there’s many reasons to do an I.T apprenticeship. But when you’re taking a first look into Apprenticeships, it can be nerve wracking, after all, you’re deciding your next 12-18 months!

Here, we take a look at some of the reasons it pays to work in I.T!

Earn whilst you learn

Not only will you be learning your trade from experienced professionals, you’ll be getting paid to do it! Apprenticeships have a bad rep for being low paid, but compared to the cost of university you’ll still be quids in.

Student card

Yep, it’s not just your uni mates that get a student card. Our friends over at NUS offer an Apprenticeship card which means you can save money at places like ASOS, McDonalds, Frankie and Benny’s, myprotein.com, Superdrug and more!

I.T covers a variety of job roles 

You might think working in I.T is working in an office providing technical support, and whilst this can be a great career path, I.T apprenticeships also cover, I.T Infrastructure, Digital Marketing, I.T Professional and even I.T Technical Sales Person!

Big brands LOVE apprenticeships in I.T

Hewlett Packard, CCS, Softcat and Exponential all love Apprenticeships. Getting placed with a big company can open up a whole new world of opportunities that you might not have thought of. Likewise, a smaller company can mean you get up the ladder a lot faster.

Working in I.T pays

Okay, we know we already mentioned that you get paid. But, with such high demand for IT professionals, and a shortage of people with these skills, salary levels remain higher in the UK than average, even rising at around 8 times above the national average each year.
