Are you looking for a career in computing or IT, but want to learn in a practical way - set free of the classroom? Are you ambitious, self motivated and enthusiastic about technology? Do you want to earn a decent living, not rack up £27,000 of debt over the next three years before you even start earning?
If you found yourself shouting YES at the screen, then a technology focused Apprenticeship might be for you.
Read on to find out more about us, our award winning Apprenticeship programme, current opportunities and where an Apprenticeship with Carbon Six Digital could take you.
Why follow the Apprenticeship path?
It’s not that we think the traditional university route is a bad idea. On the contrary, many of us have been to university, loved the experience and found it really valuable.
But there are some very serious shortcomings. A full-time Computing degree is likely to cost up to £27,000, and in many cases won’t give you the skills that employers are looking for. This can make it harder for you to find employment that best exploits the investment you’ve made.
At Carbon Six Digital we believe that there's another way. We've developed an award winning Apprenticeship programme to give you on-the-job training enabling you to develop the knowledge, skills and experience that employers are looking for. In many cases you'll also have the opportunity to obtain industry qualifications with companies such as Microsoft and Oracle. You’ll get all of this, plus a reasonable salary and your training costs will be paid for.

How to land an Apprenticeship
We've met a lot of candidates and sifted through a lot of CVs. We know it's hard for candidates to stand out from the crowd for the right reasons.
