Arch combines young talent with great employers to create valuable and productive employees in entry level IT and Digital jobs, backed by the Government’s Apprenticeship Programme. Arch creates cost-effective IT & Digital Skills by tapping into a talent pool overlooked by our competitors: young people coming into the workforce for the first time. Over 1000 young people and over 500 employers are already enjoying the benefits of Arch Apprenticeships. Employers include Google, Facebook, The Guardian and Barclays, as well as digital marketing agencies, publishers, e-tailers, IT firms, tech companies, charities and public bodies. Arch partners with leading industry organisations, such as CompTIA and Microsoft, to deliver training of the highest quality. 93% of apprentices go into full time employment on completion of their Arch Apprenticeship. More details about Arch can be found here. Virtually University is running this videoconference/webinar ideal for Year 12s & 13s with a potential interest in IT and Digital Media careers.

The sessions are being jointly presented by Arch Apprentices. They are really keen to to talk to sixth formers about the IT and Digital industries and the apprenticeships they offer on behalf of some very exciting companies.

The session is free to schools and college.

The session will be delivered by Luke Harris, an inspiring and engaging public speaker, supported by other colleagues at Arch. It will last up to an hour and will be interactive, enabling students to share their ideas and to ask questions.

The session will cover:

o Arch apprenticeships;

o Introduction to Jeba Jahan, an Arch apprentice, to share her experience

o Questions

Suitable for: Schools & Colleges in the West Midlands and Bristol areas.

Arch will look at academic results but they are most interested in talking to students who demonstrate a passion for and, ability in, the creative and commercial aspects of digital media and also those that are more technically oriented. This is for Year 12 and Year 13 students.
