Fargo Systems, the UK’s leading software provider to the intermodal transport industry, has launched a new software apprenticeship programme in a strategic move to invest in the next generation of IT talent.
The logistics software specialist has partnered with Suffolk New College to deliver the apprenticeship programme. The programme provides weekly educational support to apprentice Hamish Marwick, aged 17, who has enrolled on the 18-month work-based BTEC Level 3 qualification in Professional Competence for IT and Telecoms Professionals.
Hamish’s ‘learn-on-the-job’ role will incorporate key skills such as SQL, independent problem solving and experience across a wide range of support and development projects.
Steve Collins, Fargo Systems Director said: “We are very excited to launch our first apprenticeship programme. We are working in partnership with an innovative education provider to create an apprenticeship scheme that enables people to turn their passion for technology into a potential career.”
Steve Collins continues: “We are keen to develop the next generation of talent in the company and it underlines our commitment to recruiting highly-motivated young people from the local area.”
