Tony Nevill, UK&I managing director commented: “The apprentice programme is a serious investment on our part. The University route isn’t for everyone and many highly talented and motivated young people have a hunger to continue learning in the real-world on a track that suits their skills and interest. We provide that opportunity, one that allows them to develop and grow, and benefit from the considerable talents many bring from day-one, especially in key areas such as IT and digital skills. The apprentices need our time and resources if they are to flourish, so all have a dedicated mentor and a structured programme of training and project work specific to the practice or team they are in.”
The Westcon-Comstor apprentice programme is in partnership with Remit Training. Westcon-Comstor provides relevant industry and technical skills development with Remit Training delivering training and development pertinent to the modern workplace. The programme runs for a period of twelve to eighteen months, after which the intention is for the apprentice to continue their development path, subject to performance during that time and role availability. A total of 19 apprentices are currently employed in Westcon-Comstor, adding-value in the key practices of Security, Networking Infrastructure and Data Centre, and Unified Communications.
