The Infrastructure Technician Apprenticeship programme is suitable for new entrants and existing professionals. Our programme focusses on supporting the learner and the organisation including end user computing, network architecture and cloud services.
Apprentices will learn in a blended format which includes online, anytime access learning combined with access to cloud-powered hands-on labs, a trainer to guide them through the programme and expert-led classroom training in critical topics.
Apprentices will gain experience in security compliance, supporting operating systems, managing mobile devices, harnessing virtualisation and using open source tools. The following elements will need to be completed:
Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours modules:
Learners will gain extensive knowledge and skills in essential topics such as hardware, software, networking and security, whilst achieving industry recognised certifications from vendors such as CompTIA and CIW.
Functional Skills in maths and English:
These provide practical skills to help gain the most out of work, education and everyday life. Learners will complete written and online tests.
The end-point assessment is the final stage of the apprenticeship. It comprises written and practical tests as well as a showcase of evidence, professional dialogue and interview.
Following enrollment, learners engage in a blended programme of training and support that will include attendance at group training sessions, self-directed learning, email and face-to-face support from their trainer/assessor as well as a programme of training devised by the employer.
The length of the programme will differ depending on experience, knowledge and skills development but the course should usually take 15 to 18 months.
