Apprenticeships

Software development is a booming career sector - in this increasingly digital age, practically every company now has a team of software engineers working away to build and maintain the technology behind every app, website or programme that enables a company to interact with their customers, provide them with a service and/or process their purchases/activities. If they don’t have their own developers, they’re paying an agency or consultant to carry out the work.

1./ What exactly is an apprenticeship?

It's a full-time job, so you can get stuck straight into the world of work, gaining experience and earning a salary from day one. But you'll spend 20% of your working week in off-the-job training, working towards your qualification, developing your professional skills and broadening your horizons to help you figure out exactly what kind of career you want to shape for yourself after you finish the programme.

2./ How long does an apprenticeship last?

Apprenticeships typically last 12-18 months, depending on the level of the qualification you're undertaking.

3./ What can I do an apprenticeship in?

There are 300 different government standards for apprenticeship qualifications in all kinds of sectors imaginable. At WhiteHat, we specialise in apprenticeships in professional services - careers such as digital marketing, accounting, business administration, software engineering. We want to open up traditionally closed industries to applicants from diverse backgrounds.

4./ What kinds of companies can I do an apprenticeship at?

We're working with some of the world's biggest tech companies, like Google and Facebook; top law firms like Mishcon de Reya; media companies like Warner Bros.; fashion houses like Burberry; and cool startups like Tandem Bank. There's an office environment to suit every kind of person.
