Supporting AWS through Apprenticeships
- Date: 07 July, 2021
GK Apprenticeships are determined to ensure apprenticeships are on every employer’s agenda when it comes to talent acquisition and development strategies. Why? Given the recent feedback received from partners and the WorldSkills UK report; the demand for advanced, technical specific digital skills is substantially increasing. This in turn is impacting the UK economy and the digital skills gap is widening!
Working with our partner network is fundamental to this strategy and therefore we are proud to announce that we have joined forces with AWS; both as a Vendor partner and also a supporter of the AWS re/Start programme. In a recent blog, AWS announced their pledge to support, via their Levy transfer, fully funded apprenticeships for 50 apprentice vacancies when AWS customers take on AWS re/Start Graduates. Furthermore, we also have 50% discount for AWS exams undertake by these apprentices within their learning journey. Coupling this with the access we have to the AWS re/Start graduate talent pools that have been facilitated nationally by organisations such as Generation, IN4.0 and Tech Talent Academy, it provides a fantastic opportunity for employers to take advantage of building their IT technical capabilities which will be fully funded through this initiative.
This initiative is aimed at AWS Partners or Customers who are looking for entry level Tech Talent, who have already undertaken technical training and at entry level are Cloud Practitioner qualified. If you are looking at DevOps, Data and Software Dev roles and you realise that you need more technically specific people in your teams, and want/need to develop your future tech leaders within 2 years then please do contact us
This 12-week AWS re/Start programme has already been mapped into our Level 4 Apprenticeships in the above areas and provides the access to fully funded apprenticeships for you as an employer. If you resonate with any of the above statements and would like to know more, then drop an email to Cat Mawdsley and she will happily provide you with a no obligation informative session.
