Ford launches brand new higher apprenticeship in IT

Ford is launching a series of engineering and business apprenticeship programmes, including a new Higher Apprenticeship in IT.

The extension of Ford’s business higher apprenticeships is part of its search for the industry’s next innovators and business leaders through its apprenticeship programmes.

Starting in September in partnership with the University of Greenwich, apprenticeships will lead to a full degree-level qualification, offering training in a range of engineering skills.

Dr. Raj Bhatti, Head of Department, Mechanical, Manufacturing and Design Engineering from the University of Greenwich, said: “We are extremely pleased to be part of Ford’s Higher Apprenticeship programmes, which will this year become stronger than ever. Greenwich places great store in ensuring that graduates can seek out new opportunities, generate novel ideas, and be effective in the world of work, and this partnership is a first-class example of achieving just that.”

Applications close on 16th May.
