What are IT Apprenticeships?
All apprentices are employed, they earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. JBC Apprenticeships take a minimum of one year to complete.
Who are they for?
JBC Apprentices must meet the eligibility requirements of the programme, found here and be 16 years of age or over.
You need to be living within travelling distance of our Coventry training centre and not taking part in full-time education.
Competition for apprenticeships can be fierce, so you will have to show that you are committed, and aware of your responsibilities to both yourself and the company who would employ you. You also need to be happy to work as both part of a team and individually, and be able to use your own initiative.
IT apprenticeships are designed with the help of employers in the IT industry. They offer a structured programme that takes you through the skills you need to do a job well.
There are targets and checks to make sure that your employer is supporting you and you are making progress.
As an employee you will spend most of your time in the workplace. Your off-the-job technical training takes place at times agreed with your employer at JBC's training centre in Earlsdon, Coventry.
All the things you study will be useful in your job and help you succeed in your future career.
The Apprenticeship Agreement is an agreement between you, an employer and JBC. The purpose of the Apprenticeship Agreement is to:-
- identify the skill, trade or occupation for which you are being trained; and
- confirm the qualifying Apprenticeship framework that you are following.
An Apprenticeship Agreement reflects the fact that an Apprenticeship is primarily a job rather than training.
