Questions you may have:-

Why does our partner client have 50 opportunities opening up each month ?

The answer to this is that they are a victim of their own success. By providing their own clients with highly qualified contract workers who start working on a 6-9 month contract basis, many of these individuals will then end up being offered permanent positions within the company they are placed with.

Why have you formed this partnership ?

Both ourselves and our client have the same ethos. That is to help individuals with no experience embark on a new career in IT. In this certification driven world it has become almost impossible for individuals to begin a new career without experience. Therefore, we provide certified individuals and our partner client gives these candidates their first IT role enabling them to gain the valuable experience they need to begin a long and rewarding career. In return, by employing entry level individuals our partner client is able to win more contracts by being competitive in their own field. Therefore, this is a real "win win" scenario.

How quickly can I complete the training ?

In order to reach the standard required by our partner it is a requirement that you pass both the CompTIA A+ Windows 70-680 certifications. On average this would require around 90-120 hours study and theoretically could be completed in just a few weeks.

Is the package expensive ?

The training is designed to provide you with a real opportunity to embark on a career in IT. Therefore, it has been designed to give you everything you need to achieve this and remove any obstacles that may have otherwise been in the way. In relative terms and compared to the cost of a obtaining a degree which achieves the same objective it is exceptional value with monthly payments from around £60 per month based on our finance option.
