FIT has been charged by government and the tech sector with the implementation of ICT Associate Professional (ICT AP) – a new dual education apprenticeship style format, designed to provide the ICT industry with candidates with in-demand technology skills in a timely fashion.
International experience indicates that hiring ICT apprentices can help businesses build a skilled and motivated workforce in a cost effective manner. Equally important, employers of all sizes can 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 of time.
Skills demand in technology companies is a global issue. With the phenomenal growth in the sector, all jurisdictions are competing for tech talent. Ireland has turned this global demand for skills into a competitive advantage.
FIT are holding an upcoming information session regarding our ICT Associate Professional Programme in SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT- a dual-education (apprenticeship style) programme.
The aim of the programme is to equip candidates with the technical skills and applied learning required by industry, in a timely fashion, to address the growing skills shortage in the sector.
