BT Wholesale is delighted to announce they have recently won the Best Apprenticeship Scheme award at the Comms Dealer Sales & Marketing Awards.
The company have ambitious plans for 2020 and beyond, focusing on introducing a skills training programme that empowers apprentices to drive change, share ideas and take ownership of projects in their first foray in the working world. With the rising costs of going to university and uncertain career prospects upon graduation, apprenticeships are now being increasingly recognised as a valid alternative to studying for a degree.
As a group, BT has recently announced it has created more than 1,600 new apprenticeship and graduate jobs to join its over 80,000 strong UK workforce, recruiting talent into the company across areas as diverse as engineering, customer service, TV production, and cyber-security to support the UK’s fast-growing digital sectors. The new recruits will also support the company’s plans to extend 4G coverage and build the latest 5G networks around the UK.
