IT Engineer apprentices learn to work on IT Support projects, defining requirements and managing execution. These projects may be local or they may be a part of a larger operational excellence/continuous improvement initiative that apply to multiple locations. As they progress through the programme apprentices will be able identify root causes of operational issues and participate in continuous improvement efforts to eliminate process inefficiencies. They develop the skills to author knowledge base articles and user documentation, they will learn to code which may be applied in automating tasks or modifying small tools.

In addition to growing their technical knowledge and skills, apprentices will have opportunity to develop key and complementary soft skills required within a business environment for example effective communication and teamwork, managing stakeholder relationships, consultancy within a technology context and presentation skills. This blend of technical and interpersonal skills provides a balanced learner journey.

The delivery of the academic programme is facilitated by the training provider using online learning and resources, classroom sessions and 1:1 coaching. Apprentices will complete a series of modules related to specific topics and undertake discovery, practical and application activities to learn, embed and practice their learning. Each individual develops a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate their competence and will undertake a work-based project where they further apply their learning from the modules studied.

Learners are supported throughout the apprenticeship by their training provider learning consultant, the Amazon apprenticeship team, their line manager and buddies/mentors from the IT function.
