IT Solutions Technician Apprenticeship
IT Solutions Technicians develop, implement and maintain complete IT solutions, including their hardware infrastructure (such as servers and networks) and software (such as operating systems, middleware and applications).
They work as part of a multi-disciplinary team. Many such teams will be modern “DevOps” style teams, which carry out the full set of stages across the whole solution lifecycle: requirements gathering, solution development, testing, implementation and ongoing support. In more traditional organisations the team is likely to be focused more at one or other end of this broad set of activities. Such teams may well be in transition to a modern “DevOps” style team.

We deliver an extensive training plan that is based on a blended model of learning. This model includes structured self-learning via our e-learning platforms, live one-to-one online training sessions with subject experts, proactive support with a skills coach, regular reviews and more.
This approach allows us to develop a bespoke plan for every learner and employer. Offering flexibility around the approach to learning and developing in a professional environment.
