At risual we identified that skills shortages are a significant problem facing employers. risual education’s priority is to commit ourselves to fill this gap with a unique, industry focused, apprenticeship scheme with relevant qualifications that meets both employer and learner needs. Armed with our genuine passion to give young people opportunities, we embarked on a mission to create our own academies in Further Education Colleges to cultivate new talent through apprenticeships. We have a desire to create sustainable careers and develop IT skills for young individuals to increase their career prospects. With our unique industry relevant assessors supporting our apprentices and the College academic expertise it creates well rounded, skilled individuals in the IT sector. risual’s vision to drive innovation in technology and work alongside Microsoft to enhance teaching and learning means we can enable students to develop the digital literacy skills they need to be effective members of the workforce.
The Colleges that risual partner with have the same passion and desire to address the digital skills shortage and make industry recognised quaifications available to both students and local employers. This apprenticeship scheme will be offered through one FE College in each LEP area, offering a consistent nationwide programme whilst supporting the public sector and Further Education.
This award recognises the strength of our apprenticeship offer and how young people can benefit as well as employers and it makes us incredibly proud to have the scheme recognised as the best in 2016!
