These are exciting opportunities to study for a BSc (Hons) degree at De Montfort University in Leicester at the same time as working for IBM. Apprentices will spend 80% of their time on client work at IBM and 20% studying for their degree at University.
At the end of the 4 year apprenticeship, successful students will be awarded a BSc (Hons) in Digital and Technology Solutions, so this is a great way of obtaining a degree without the need for a student loan.
This opportunity is great for candidates to learn on the job, gain work experience and also obtain a degree. IBM pays the tuition fees and for those not based in Leicester expenses to travel to the University in Leicester, along with a salary of £18,000 per year.
Please can you forward this information to Year 13 students you know and might be interested? The minimum requirements are 5 GCSEs Grade 5-9 (incl. Maths and English Language), along with predicted or obtained at least BBB at A-level, including at least one grade B at A-level in Maths, a Science or IT.
Students who are interested should apply direct on the IBM Website at the link below. Applications are welcomed now, with an anticipated start date in September this year. We are currently taking on apprentices in two locations:
