Why take on a Business Apprentice with BTC?
The UK skills deficit in digital technologies is affecting businesses across the South West. The vast amount of businesses requiring digital skills is on the rise and looking for new skills in the sector to respond to this cultural shift. In 2019, BTC announced that it would become one of the 50 firms in Taunton to form part of a newly developed digital hub.
Digital Taunton has been established as a new networking venue for Taunton, in a bid to grow the sector locally and attract young people into the industry. The College is continually investing into new digital courses for 16-18 year olds over the next two years and is aiming to increase the number of its digital apprenticeships by using Digital Taunton to meet with new firms.
Our Learning Resource centre, provides our apprentices access to thousands of books, journals, DVDs, CDs, magazines and newspapers across all three campuses. We encourage learners to use them as study spaces, where you can access all manner of resources, stretch your intellect, and inform your growth. A bank of computers and free Wi-Fi make the centres perfect working environments.
Placements provide employers with additional support from a learner studying an industry relevant course. They will involve a 45-60 day placement in a relevant role with a host employer.
For the launch of the T Levels we are looking for dynamic and pioneering employers to partner with us for each of the courses we run, with the commitment predominately being based on your business offering Industry Placements for BTC students. One of the first T Level qualifications that will require a business to host an Industry Placement for a student is the Digital production, design and development T Level.
