ANS Group’s apprenticeship is “mostly on the job”

ANS Group, an IT business based in Manchester, is combating the skills gap in the sector with apprenticeships, it has been reported.

Scott Fletcher runs the business, and plans to employ 60 young people over the next year to keep up to date with new technologies.

He said: β€œIn the IT space we are reinventing ourselves every couple of years. A lot of companies are now starting to grasp the nettle and it’s resulting in a lot of innovation – on our apprenticeship scheme there is hardly any classroom time, for example, it’s mostly on the job.”
