About The Role

ICT Service Desk Technician Apprentice

Burton Upon Trent

Are you keen to kick start your career in the IT sector as an ICT Service Desk Technician?

Then we have the apprenticeship opportunity for you!

Working in conjunction with Risual Apprenticeships, REAch2 Academy Trust is offering an opportunity to gain an apprenticeship in ICT where you will learn, develop and become an essential part of the REAch2 Academy Trust IT Team.

You will be working in our head office in Burton upon Trent joining an experienced ICT support team helping to provide ICT services to our growing number of schools.

About REAch2 Academy Trust

The Trust has 60 academies based all across England and includes schools at various stages of development, from those requiring significant improvement through to existing outstanding schools. As a Trust we are clear about the importance of achieving long term sustainability for our schools. Our vision is to enable individual academies to flourish with real autonomy, whilst also ensuring a strong ethos of support and collaboration across our schools.

We are presented with a rare opportunity to make a real difference to the lives and life chances of so many primary school children – many of whom haven’t previously received the educational opportunities they deserve.

In order to deliver our vision, we need exceptional staff across the organisation, and we believe that the quality of our staff sets us apart.

The ICT Service Desk Technician Apprenticeship provides a great opportunity for someone to launch their career in IT and support our schools.
