New scheme offers further employment opportunities at world-leading software company

Cambridge, UK – 29 September 2015: AVEVA announced today the launch of its new apprenticeship scheme. Starting in October 2015, young people will have the opportunity to begin work as software developers at one of Cambridge’s most successful international software companies. Working with training partner, Firebrand, AVEVA will offer a comprehensive higher education ‘Level 4’ programme, which involves two years job training and carries accreditation from the BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT.

‘We have long been supporters of young people entering industry through our graduate opportunities and internships, ’ said Hilary Wright, EVP Human Resources, AVEVA. ‘Not everyone is suited to university education. It is a concern to us that talented potential engineers would miss out on the opportunity of a long and worthwhile career, especially in an area where there is a critical skills shortage.  We are delighted that the government has now recognised the need for the software development apprenticeship which gives us the opportunity to offer a highly skilled job role to a young person.’

Skills Minister Nick Boles MP added,  ’Businesses are better placed than anyone to train the next generation of workers and will help us deliver 3 million high-quality apprenticeships by 2020. By designing apprenticeships, employers like AVEVA are ensuring that young talented people develop the skills needed to progress up the career ladder and help drive businesses forward.’

AVEVA has offered students and graduates work-placements for a number of years. The current AVEVA graduate programme offers up to two years of rotational placements across the business and is endorsed by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM).
