New digital apprenticeship scheme

Arch, the apprenticeship division of London based IT services firm Agilisys, has introduced a new digital marketing apprenticeship scheme which aims to get 120 young people into employment in the next six months.

The programme has support from the Government, Google, and other digital companies keen to support apprenticeships. The apprentices will receive high quality training from Arch whilst working for a period of 12 months in a digital role.

With support from the UK Government’s Employer Ownership of Skills initiative and the National Apprenticeship Service, Arch aims to tackle to lack of training apparent in the digital economy by making apprenticeships more accessible to young people. It follows in the footsteps of other large organisations which have professional apprenticeship schemes such as leading accountancy firm PwC.

Skills Minister ,Matthew Hancock, said: “I’m delighted that Agilisys Arch has launched its digital apprenticeship programme with the support of the Government’s “Employer Ownership of Skills” initiative. We are seeing more and more apprenticeships in professional disciplines, like digital marketing, which shows how highly apprenticeships are valued by both young people and employers alike.”
