What will the apprentice be doing?
Join our programme and you'll study towards a BSc (Hons) Digital and Technology Solutions degree (IT focus) at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) and spend time developing your career at CGI. You'll either study one day per week or in blocks and you will be in a role relevant to the degree specialism you study which could include for example IT support, Software Testing or Software Development.
What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?
You'll study for a BSc (Hons) Digital and Technology Solutions degree qualification with the MMU. You can expect to study a range of modules that will benefit your IT career! What's even better is this learning is complemented by on-the-job training on real projects at CGI. One of the best thing about joining us is that while you may start in one area, the opportunity to move internally is huge, so you can take control of your career from day one.
What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?
At the end of your apprenticeship, you will have achieved a degree qualification. You have a permanent contract from day one so you continue to work for CGI after you have completed your apprenticeship. You'll also benefit from a competitive starting salary and all the support you need to succeed. We'll even provide the course resources and materials required!
