  • Secure an apprentice for a guaranteed 12-14 month period
  • Apprentices achieve a level 4 qualification accredited by the British Computing Society
  • Upskill your existing staff members 
  • Attract more women into tech roles in your business
  • No recruitment fees

How to hire an apprentice

You can do this in one of two ways: we can send Full Stack Track course applicants to you for interview, or you can identify people with potential from inside or outside your business and send them to us for assessment.

After passing our assessment and your interview, the apprentice will begin with four months of intensive software developer training (our Full Stack Track course), then join you for 12-14 months. Based on their portfolio of work, a final project undertaken at iO Academy, and an interview with their manager, the apprentice will then be awarded their qualification.

Our apprenticeships are offered in partnership with Bath College, and accredited by British Computing Society (BCS).

Apprenticeships are a great way to upskill individuals from underrepresented backgrounds working in other areas of your business to bring more balance to your tech teams.

You can also use an apprenticeship to retrain those returning from career breaks, who may already have a wealth of valuable transferable skills and experience.
