IT Infrastructure Technician Apprenticeship at Gloucestershire College

Designed for businesses of all sizes and sectors, our Level 3 IT Infrastructure Technician Apprenticeship provides the essential technical skills needed within any organisation.

All businesses have had to adapt rapidly to move online in 2020. One of the biggest challenges facing many employers now is sustaining these new ways of working in a safe, secure and effective way. Does your business have the necessary IT and technical resources to maintain your new online systems and communication methods?  Are you agile enough to rise to any new challenges that may come in the future?

We can train your current employees or bring in new recruits for your business with essential IT skills to keep your business moving.

IT Infrastructure Technician Apprenticeship - Level 3

Who is this programme for?

Anyone aged 16 or over can complete our Level 3 IT Infrastructure Technician Apprenticeship. Perfect for both new recruits and current employees who are looking to upskill, this apprenticeship is a great way to train and bring invaluable skills into your business.

Ideal for SMEs with office spaces and collaborative teams, a dedicated IT professional in your business can dramatically reduce downtime caused by technical issues and ensure the smooth running of your business day to day.

If you are looking to hire new talent for your business, our Business Hub team can help you recruit.

What will the apprenticeship cover?

This apprenticeship is perfect for help desk technicians, first or second line support professionals, IT technicians or network support roles. The programme will help apprentices to build the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to effectively trouble shoot and solve problems within an organisation or for external customers. They will be able to set up new starters up on systems, provide support when it’s needed and rectify issues to maintain the organisation’s productivity.

The apprenticeship will develop competencies including:

  • Communications
  • IT Security
  • Remote infrastructure
  • Data
  • Problem solving
  • Workflow management
  • Health and safety
  • Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment directive

Apprentices will work towards a Microsoft certified professional (MCP) CompTIA/A+ and ITIL Certification as part of their apprenticeship. Once completed successfully, the apprentice is recognised for entry on to the register of IT Technicians confirming SFIA Level 3 professional competence.

How is the training delivered?

Our IT and Cyber apprentices are grouped in exclusive cohorts with fellow apprentices from other like-minded businesses. The theory of our IT & Cyber programmes is delivered in block release on campus, supported by our team of expert assessors and trainers who visit apprentices in their place of work to help them put the theory into practice.

What will it cost?

  • If your company has less than 50 employees and you take on a 16 to 18-year-old, you are entitled to receive the training completely free of charge.
  • If you are not a levy payer, (your wage bill is less than £3 million) you will contribute just 5% of the total cost of your apprenticeship training, the Government will pay the remaining 95%. 
  • If you pay the apprenticeship levy, we can support you to maximise your levy strategy and make the most of funding on offer. You can use your levy funds to bring in new talent to the business, or upskill existing employees and help reduce skills gaps.   

Our experts in our Business Hub team are here to support your business and offer guidance about how you can maximise funding for apprenticeships. Get in touch to arrange a free consultation with one of the Business Hub team today.
