Invotra is supporting National Apprenticeship Week 2022

Apprenticeship Week at Invotra

Invotra is proudly taking part in National Apprenticeship Week (#NAW2022) from 7 to 13 February 2022. We are looking forward to all of the events hosted during the week.

This year the theme for the week is ‘build the future’; how apprenticeships can help develop the skills and knowledge for a rewarding career, and how businesses, like our own, can develop talented workforce with future-ready skills.

Nqobile Dube started at iO1 during May of 2011 as a Software Development apprentice. Before he went ahead with his apprenticeship, Nqobile was actually already in university studying Computing. However, he felt that an apprenticeship would be a much better path to take.

‘The apprenticeship scheme at Invotra offers an incredible journey, and one I am extremely thankful for. Not only are you supported to reach your potential whilst completing the courses, you are also put into meaningful work situations to gain vital experience (gone are the days of apprentices making tea). My ambition a few years ago was to join the Board of Directors, and to now be managing the board and the direction of the business is a true reflection of how much the apprenticeship scheme has had an impact on my success.”

Before Niall began his apprenticeship he had already undertaken part of a degree in Chemical Engineering. Dissatisfied with his experience at university he decided to start an apprenticeship with Invotra, which has allowed him to study a new subject, without the drawback of paying yearly university fees.

Ben started his current course after 2 years already working at Invotra, having finished a level 3 in software development. The idea of being able to do a degree while continuing to progress in his career at Invotra was extremely appealing to him.

Having always found difficulty with the rigidity of the learning structure in school and college, the idea of being able to learn by practical application, and to learn in a way where he would be able to see the impact of the work he was doing in a real-world scenario, was something which set apprenticeships apart for Jake.
