Digital apprenticeships for young people in North Wales

Young people with a passion for digital technology can apply for a two year apprenticeship scheme with Natural Resources Wales (NRW).

The Cyfoeth scheme, set up by NRW four years ago, offers college and sixth form leavers an opportunity to work while gaining valuable IT (Information Technology) qualifications.

The apprentices will be involved in a wide range of tasks which are essential to the Wales-wide organisation.

This can include anything from computer programming to setting up networks in offices.

Mark Diggle, IT Apprenticeship Scheme Manager for Natural Resources Wales, said:

“We are looking for apprentices to come and work in our Bangor office.

“They will have the chance to learn new skills and work alongside IT professionals, while also gaining a qualification by Microsoft.

NRW have taken on sixteen people to work in the organisation’s IT department since the Cyfoeth apprenticeship scheme began in 2013.

Mark continued:

 “This is great opportunity for young people who are considering a career in a hugely important and growing sector in Wales.

 “The Cyfoeth apprenticeship scheme has been such a success and we’re proud to provide opportunities like this that help create a more skilled workforce in Wales.

This year the apprenticeship has been extended to include an IT Commercials Apprenticeship which will combine a BTEC level 3 Diploma in Business Administration with a professional CIPS qualification.

The closing date for applications is 8 September 2017.
