FIT ICT Associate Professional – Apprenticeship in IT

ICT Associate Professional is a new dual-education apprenticeship programme, designed to provide the ICT industry with candidates with in-demand technology skills. The programme has been endorsed by industry and government and is now being rolled out on a pilot basis in various locations in Ireland.

International experience indicate that hiring ICT apprentices can help businesses build a skilled and motivated workforce in a cost effective manner. Employers of all sizes get access to highly motivated tech enthusiasts who attain bespoke skills which enable them to be highly productive and to ‘hit the ground running’ in a relatively short period.

The overarching pillars of ICTAP are Software Development and Systems & Networks.

Companies such as Accenture, Cork Internet Exchange, Fujitsu, IBM, Microsoft, SAP and Version 1 have already embraced the initiative, viewing it as a practical pathway to acquiring in–demand tech skills.

The ICTAP programme has already commenced in Dublin and we are now launching the initiative in the Monaghan area in conjunction with the Monaghan Institute of Further Education and local Industry.

This is a great opportunity to tap into a valuable ICT Talent Pipeline which will enable you to achieve a motivated, skilled and committed workforce in a timely and cost efficient manner. Please find attached a FIT ICTAP Employer Leaflet for your information.
