View all News View all Events

Devon based BIT Group is offering a new IT Apprenticeships service. This will be for anyone wanting to train to access the world of IT, Cyber and Information Security across the Southwest.

The 12 and 24 month apprenticeship programmes will start in January 2022. In addition to time with an employer, BIT Training is offering the opportunity to work in their Security Operation Centre. Here, those training will gain valuable industry experience that they can bring back to their employers.


Ben Franklin, BIT Training CEO, says : “We are excited to be offering this new apprenticeship service from January 2022! We believe it’s a great opportunity for organisations to receive commercially led tech apprenticeships from a local innovative provider. 

“All apprenticeships will meet the latest standards in IT, Cyber and Digital Marketing, and will accredit the individual learning to global as well as UK recognised certifications.”

The programme offers an alternative route into the technology profession. It also opens the opportunity for organisations to level up and make it accessible to more people.

He adds: “We hope that by offering these commercial apprenticeships in the region it will help levy and non-levy paying businesses to drive diversity and inclusion by using the apprenticeship level 3 and 4 to engage a wider pool of people”.

The team at BIT Training has nearly two decades of experience helping businesses and individuals get a competitive edge from IT training across the UK. They also have a proud history of supporting military leavers establish new careers.

In the last twelve months, the company has also delivered one of the UK’s first Cyber and IT skills Bootcamps. A programme designed for individuals hardest hit by the Covid economy; with a mission to help the regions residents get re-employed or re-skilled to fill the growing tech skills gap. These learners gain the vital pre-skills to progress much quicker into an apprenticeship and make excellent future employees.
