Demystifying Apprenticeships in the Software Industry

Event Details


12:00 - 14:00

Sunderland Software City at Sunderland Software Centre

Sunderland Software City is hosting an event alongside Sunderland College to give employers in the software sector facts and tips about hiring an apprentice.

A recent apprenticeship pilot found that employers didn’t understand the process involved in hiring an apprentice and struggled to find the time to find out about it. 

Bob Paton, MD of Accenture and interim CEO of the North East LEP, will be speaking about his experiences of hiring apprentices from a leader’s perspective and the importance of apprenticeships to the region’s software and technology industry. 

There will also be apprentices from Accenture and Geek Talent sharing their experiences of what it is like to be an apprentice in this sector.

The free networking event, which includes a buffet lunch, takes place at Sunderland Software City, Sunderland Software Centre, Tavistock Place, Sunderland, SR1 1PB. To book your free place, register here
