The Digital Apprenticeship Programme aims to provide practical work experience to junior technology professionals as well as expose non-tech businesses to the benefits of digital enablement.

Many internship/apprenticeship programmes are unsuccessful as businesses do not have the time and capacity to mentor/develop the junior interns/apprentice. This often leads to a poor experience for the business and the intern/apprentice as neither derive any value from the experience, with the intern/apprentice ending up doing menial tasks.

In this program, the junior technical professionals is be matched to either a digitally enabled start-up/scale up or a non-tech traditional business to deliver a specific agreed project which could include a website, business intelligence, a chatbot etc. An additional component of advisory/mentorship will be added to ensure the junior technical developers get the support they require.
