About Firebrand Apprenticeships

Are you an employer looking to upskill your current staff, or hire a qualified IT professional? Or someone with a passion for IT wanting to find a fast route into higher-level qualifications – and a job at the same time?


Firebrand Apprenticeships grow IT teams your way – as the only accelerated training provider for bespoke digital apprenticeship programmes, developed by groups of employers called Trailblazers.

Firebrand is a Tech Industry Gold Digital Apprenticeship provider, which means you get a completely customised 15-18 month accelerated IT apprenticeships programme to upskill current employees or train new staff – with no age restrictions.

Our apprentices are like no other. Learning at twice the speed at a higher level, our award-winning IT apprentices (Microsoft Apprentice Of The Year, National Apprenticeship Service awards) offer businesses the opportunity to develop their own way through our bespoke programmes.

Plus, because apprenticeships are government-funded, businesses receive co-investment from the government worth up to £18,000. Find out more about funding apprenticeships here.


As an apprentice, you’ll gain industry-recognised qualifications (including those from our partners including Microsoft and Cisco) that fast-track your way into the IT industry without any student debt. In fact, you’ll be earning money at the same time!
