Our partnership with the Institute of Technology
Our Tech Apprenticeships will now be delivered in partnership with Swindon’s new Institute of Technology (IoT).
The IoT, based on the current site of Swindon College, has been developed with local employers to deliver timely, relevant and industry-based STEM learning to its students. It will offer a mix of remote and face-to-face learning to students and aims to bring new career opportunities to the region, with the aim of educating over 1,000 learners within five years of opening.Read more
Our IT apprenticeships
This year’s Nationwide tech apprentice roles cover a range of disciplines including cybersecurity, software development and DevOps, for young people starting their careers in technology.
We’ll have an active role in shaping and delivering the curriculum the Institute of Technology offers, including hackathons, insight days at Nationwide House in Swindon, visits from specialist speakers and employability coaching. The Society has also committed to support the wellbeing of the students at the IoT and will make regular donations to provide high quality mental health and wellbeing support for students.
Patrick Eltridge, Chief Operating Officer, said: “These apprenticeships show what can be achieved when local businesses, government and education institutions come together to reimagine STEM education in this country. It was why Nationwide, alongside other local organisations, worked so hard to bring the IoT to Swindon in the first place.
"It’s the latest step in our early careers technology strategy which has already seen us partner with the likes of Code Club, Tech She Can and the NCCE to improve the quality, and availability, of STEM education to young people across the country. I cannot wait to welcome our first apprentices to the Society.”Read less
