We have partnered with PETA Training Ltd & Highbury College to offer  unique industry and vendor-led Level 3 IT Apprenticeship programme.  Accredited by City & Guilds and endorsed by The Tech Partnership, the UK’s sector skills council for IT, students will gain 2 full Level 3 Apprenticeship Diploma’s as well as vendor certifications.

The IT Apprenticeship programme turns problem-solvers into skilled PC Engineers, Network Technicians and IT Support Gurus. Designed to give school and college leavers a strong technical grounding combined with professional mentoring and assessment in the workplace, this is the best start to a successful career in IT.

In addition to this, Drift has put together a year’s training package to perfectly complement the apprentice’s studies and qualifications. Working with experienced members of the Drift team, our apprentices gain job-specific skills, specific to the role of an Education IT Technician.

There is a clear progression path to continue their Drift career once the apprenticeship has been completed.

Luke’s apprenticeship is being delivered by Highbury College and he started with Drift in January 2018. He says:

“I find the apprenticeship program with Drift IT Services to be amazing for me, allowing me to work in an engaging environment, learning new skills and concepts at every turn. Now, I am able to work both independently and in unison with other employees, to deliver as good a service as possible to clients. I get the perfect mix of working experience, classroom learning and friendly support, meaning that I get a wide variety of experiences and feel prepared for the world of work. I can’t wait to continue into the world of IT support with Drift IT Services.”
