As the Cornish tech industry continues to grow at pace, the increasing demand for an innovative new digital apprenticeship has seen a leading training provider take on an additional cohort.
CCB Training, the business training arm of The Cornwall College Group, has seen the popularity of its new Digital Support Technician apprenticeship go from strength-to-strength since its launch late last year.
For study programme manager, James Winnan, who heads up the apprenticeship for CCB Training, the rise in demand comes as no surprise.
“Since the first wave of Covid-19 lockdown, the world pivoted through online digital technologies, making it unsurprising that the future boosting digital support technician apprenticeships have been so popular,” Winnan explained.
“So much so that, in fact, we are adding an additional cohort to this academic year to meet demand.”
As the only provider of the apprenticeship in the county, The Cornwall College Group is currently training apprentices for a number of leading organisations, including Frugi, Naked Solar, Southerly Point Co-operative Multi-Academy Trust and Kings Service Centre (Kings College London).
