IT based apprenticeships specialising in things like web development and digital marketing are a popular option at the moment, and have a lot of future prospects for those who take them up. Agilisys Arch is one of the companies offering these types of apprenticeships, and we thought the best way for you to find out about them would be to hear about the experiences three of their apprentices had on their program:

Dylan Bubb

graduate jobs Dylan was among our first cohort of Digital Communications / Content marketing apprentices. He joined us in August 2012 and was placed in a marketing position with the Home Learning College.

"I first heard of the term "Apprenticeship" when I was in my 4th year of Secondary School, looking for part time work. Tensions were high; exams were drawing nearer; patience was running thin. I wanted to get education over and done with, but I was forced to wait another 12 dreary months, followed by a constant bellowing of agitated moans deriving from the mouths of my teachers and family, pressuring me to continue my studies and to hand in my coursework assignments".

Dylan was keen to continue in education and wanted to find work in some area of digital media.

"I tried to find work but found it difficult, (being only 14 at the time), so I frantically searched the internet to find other sources of work - while planning to sort out a future part-time educational study, but unfortunately many part-time jobs were not flexible with my school hours. I reached my 15th birthday, even greater personal situations created conflicts between my home, life and school itself, forcing me to give up everything I had been working for".
