Following the launch of our initial digital apprenticeship programmes, we are now gearing up for several new standards launching in 2021.
Originally set up to combat the rising skills shortage in the UK workforce, Kaplan’s digital apprenticeship programmes have proven popular with learners, with cohorts underway or scheduled across all three standards.
Looking forward to the next phase of our foray into data and IT apprenticeships, we have several exciting new programmes in the pipeline this year. These new programmes further diversify our digital learning options for both learners and clients, and represent the second phase of our digital roadmap throughout 2021 and beyond.
What new programmes are launching?
There are five new Data and IT apprenticeship programmes launching in the next 6 months.
- Finance Data Technician, Level 3 - May
- Information Communication Technician, Level 3 - September
- Software Development Technician, Level 3 - September
- Software Developer, Level 4 - September
- DevOps Engineer, Level 4 - October
These programmes cross a range of technical disciplines, and are a stepping stone into some of the careers most in need in the UK at present.
These standards last between 12 and 21 months and, as per all our apprenticeship programmes, have funding options for non-levy paying companies up to 95%. They will also benefit from the best-in-class pathways and study options offered by Kaplan, as well as access to experienced talent coaches and some of the best tutors in these fields.
Jason Moss, Director of Digital Apprenticeship development, comments:
Kaplan’s digital apprenticeship standards provide a great way of preparing your business for the challenges of tomorrow. They also have a vital role to play in helping job seekers access the still buoyant Digital jobs market - providing opportunities for anyone to access well paid and rewarding careers.
