Make cyber security a priority for your business

We have all had to adapt rapidly this year. We now know that we can work from home or online from wherever we choose. Many professionals have reaped the rewards of this new flexible way of working, leaving hour-long commutes behind and enjoying a ‘new normal’ work-life balance. While working from home comes with many positives, the real question is can we do it safely and securely?

Apprenticeship case study: Ben Carter, Apprentice Software Engineer at Iress

Gloucestershire College is proud to work with Iress to deliver training for their Software, IT Infrastructure and Cyber apprentices. Many of our apprentices with Iress have gone on to achieve distinctions in their programmes and progress to more senior roles within the company. We love sharing the success stories of our apprentices here at Gloucestershire College so we caught up with Ben Carter, Apprentice Software Engineer at Iress, to share his experience of what life is like as an apprentice and why he decided to choose the apprenticeship route.

Employer case study: Iress – Recruiting IT and cyber apprentices, even through a global pandemic

Taking on five new apprentices in October this year, Iress has successfully onboarded new Software Development Apprentices with Gloucestershire College despite the difficulties caused by the pandemic. The team at Iress have been working remotely since the start of March, which means their new apprentices are too. We caught up with Darcy Hibberd, People Partner for Talent Acquisition at Iress to share their experience of recruiting apprentices, how they have managed to work remotely and the impact apprenticeships have had on their business.
