It’s that time again, TDM is proud to be involved with the National Apprenticeship Week 2021 ‘Build the Future’ campaign. We want to use this opportunity to promote the value of apprenticeships, the commitment required to complete an apprenticeship, the long term change and success an apprenticeship can generate and the progression routes you can exploit to further your career.

Are you looking for an Apprenticeship to kickstart or further your career?

No matter your current position, there are retraining apprenticeship routes available to you. It doesn’t matter if you are unemployed, part time employed, wanting to change sectors, want to develop an interest into a career, want to reskill if you are at risk, want to formalise and develop where you are now, or you want to progress to the next level in your job – retraining and apprenticeship routes are there.

If you are currently looking to kickstart your Tech & Digital career, it’s important to know that there are opportunities there for you and TDM will support you to win your apprenticeship opportunity through our Get Ahead in Digital Transformation Programme and our Apprenticeship Seeker Programme. Both completely fully funded ways to help you grow and formalise Tech & Digital interests into career defining apprenticeships via expert coaching and mentoring.

An apprenticeship is categorically not an easy option. An apprenticeship requires wholehearted commitment, hard work, dedication and a laser focussed drive to succeed in your career. With a TDM Apprenticeship you will be employed by a company who are investing their time into developing you as a colleague for the long term. You will get to work alongside experienced staff who will help you to develop job-specific skills. So, as an apprentice, you will be gaining new skills and valuable on-the-job experience – whilst earning a salary as you study and work.

TDM are unique in offering both Pre-Apprenticeship Retraining and Degree Apprenticeship programmes in addition to our Career Entry Apprenticeship programmes. You can progress onto the next stage of your career, move up a ladder and define your own career path. TDM offers many different ways to explore this whilst also offering two Degree Level Apprenticeships

The Tech & Digital sector is an exciting, fast-evolving and extremely relevant area to be in. The industry is only going to develop more with the arrival of Industry 4.0 and with every organisation having to go through their own version of Digital Transformation on some level, no matter how small. Digital Transformation will also mean a transformation in the skills of the workforce, where certain skills and job roles will decline as new emergent tech & digital roles appear to replace them.

If you are looking to move into an apprenticeship to launch your tech & digital career and are considering a longer-term solution to the next stage of your career, then request a call to discuss your options today.

Are you an employer looking to hire an apprentice?

With many organisations not fully utilising their Apprenticeship Levy pot, and levy funding available for smaller organisations, some local authority funding support  and the Apprenticeship Incentives payment extension to March 2021, Apprenticeships have never been as important, cost-effective and valuable.

Skills development is critical for business growth and allows organisations to recruit, retrain and retain staff. This mindset paves the way for increased capacity and capability in their teams, whilst retraining helps staff to feel valued, invested in and allows them to set new goals to reach for. Apprenticeships also add immense value to companies, such as improving service to customers, being more effective at winning new business in new markets, leveraging internal efficiencies within support functions, establishing and securing competitive advantage and keeping your finger on the pulse through effective collection and analysis of data

Tech and digital is a key area for apprenticeships right now as companies of all sizes are going through their own version of digital transformation in order to perform, succeed and compete in the marketplace. COVID-19 has massively driven a need to leverage tech and digital capabilities to be able to deliver online and to operate remotely.

Tech and digital apprenticeships will enable organisations to have the skills in place when the new wave of tech lands for Industry 4.0 – VR, AR, Blockchain, 5G etc. with staff who continuously learn and develop to reach new heights.

Offering different routes that suit different options, TDM believes that Apprenticeships and Degree Apprenticeships are the most important educational programmes available in the UK for developing the “fortitude and endurance” that is needed to drive Britain’s Skills Development forward. Genuinely work-based learning, when underpinned with academic rigour, is an extremely effective strategy for developing employable knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours.

If you are a business considering a longer-term solution to your skills gap, who wants to drive the local and national economy and to work with an Apprenticeship Provider who is completely employer responsive from start to finish of a programme, then request a call to discuss your business needs today.
