Information communications technology is how we send and receive information electronically, usually using computers. As a technician, you’ll help keep these systems working.
The information communications technician (ICT) apprenticeship is the perfect entry point into the world of tech. You don’t need to be a tech whizz already. All you need is a desire to fix things and help people solve problems.
Typical tasks could include:
- using tools to troubleshoot problems, either remotely or in person
- configuring computer systems
- diagnosing hardware faults
- solving problems with applications
As an ICT apprentice, you’ll start by learning core technical skills before specialising as a Support Technician, Network Technician or in Digital Communications.
Apprenticeship duration: approx. 18 months
Salary expectations: starting salary can be between £14k and £27k
Where could you work? …Anywhere!
Information communications jobs are found in organisations of all sizes, in all sectors. Computer systems are crucial to their day to-day running.
“Our apprentices were really performing well after just three months; I saw them grow through the business and some are now on my operational team and are managers. The quality of the apprentices has been astounding.”
- Chris Dunning, CEO, Tech Quarters
