Strong Industry Support for Ireland’s New ICT Tech Apprenticeship

Since the launch of Ireland’s new ICT tech apprenticeship, industry support has been outstanding. As the digital transformation captures the attention of companies nationwide, we are excited to share industry involvement and support in reaching top-tech talent via the apprenticeship route. 

Currently there are two individual Tech Apprenticeship programmes aimed at attracting candidates with an interest in software development or network engineering. Both programmes have significant on-the-job elements and were developed with the needs of industry in mind.

As the value of the practical application of skills, knowledge and competencies are paramount many great companies are engaging with apprenticeships to fill their skills gaps. If you are interested in Tech Apprenticeships – either joining or accessing this talent pool check our website www.fit.ie or email techapprenticeship@fit.ie for all the details.
