Microsoft Apprenticeship Network

Power your potential

Apprenticeships provide promising, motivated people with an opportunity to kickstart a fulfilling career. They combine a real job with qualification-led training and the opportunity to put skills into practice. Since launching in 2010, the Microsoft Apprenticeship Network has empowered almost 30,000 apprentices to build a career in technology.

The UK needs more than three million skilled people in technology careers by 2025

89% of apprentices say the Microsoft Apprenticeship Network provides experience really valued by employers

On average, programmers and software development professionals earn £44,700*

Digital careers exist in every industry and every sector of the economy - from finance, fashion, and healthcare, to manufacturing, charities, sports clubs and government - not just in the technology industry. We work with our diverse network of customers, partners and training providers to create high quality and effective apprenticeships that enable employers to remain competitive and apprentices to power their potential.
