Our programme includes all the opportunities you need to prepare for a successful career in the technology industry. You'll build technical and business skills asIT Consultant. Your study programme is designed to fit around full-time employment, and uses a learning approach that mixes distance learning, work-based study and study days. This approach allows apprentices to combine two roles. First, you'll be a productive employee with Wipro, learning relevant skills and gaining valuable experience on client projects, with ongoing support from experts in your chosen field and your assigned mentor. Second, you'll participate in a learning community of peers (other apprentices and graduates) who are broadening and deepening their professional knowledge. On a quarterly basis, you and your manager will review your performance to ensure your success. On finishing your apprenticeship successfully, you will be a highly qualified graduate with unparalleled career opportunities.

We hire apprentices for technical roles such as Digital Engineering, Digital Testing, Business Analysis, Technical Administration, Business Intelligence, Cyber Security, Cognitive Computing, Internet of Things and Blockchain Engineering. Over the four years, you'll gain exposure to a wide range of technology stacks and business projects.
