Overview

Accenture is a top-line business consulting company; this apprenticeship is in their IT consulting division, and the embedded degree is a solidly technical one. You will very rapidly be part of building real IT applications; expect to be living out of a suitcase near whichever client you are working for. If you have ambitions to move into their mainstream consulting business, make sure that you understand what this takes: their recruitment into this area is very Oxbridgey, and we are not clear how an IT apprentice could come up-to-status.

    The aeroplane builder: top flight engineering with an emphasis on everything being done perfectly (for which we have often been thankful) and therefore on hands-on skills - graduate recruits get sent to the local FE college for a year before they are allowed near the factory floor. A good employer by all accounts.

  • ARCADIS

    "Design and consultancy for natural and built assets", they say: a top-end global construction company based in Holland but with strong UK roots. This is an apprenticeship that leads to becoming a Chartered Building Surveyor - the top professional qualification with MRICS after your name, and a core role in a business like Arcadis.

  • ARMED FORCES

    Defence of the Realm. The armed forces take training seriously: you will find yourself taking courses with great regularity. A positive, enormously supportive environment which will push you as far as you can go, and build management skills into everything you learn. Start anywhere and end up with a degree. Forces life is a thing apart - quite strange if you have not encountered it among your relatives, but something that most of us can get used to (as our forebears did): instant obedience and initiative combined, and a very strong community.
