GoCompare is launching a new technology degree apprenticeship with Aston University, giving opportunities to students who might not have access to higher education through a traditional route.
The scheme will see up to five candidates from schools and colleges in south Wales enrolled onto a degree apprenticeship course with one of the UK’s top universities, which will be fully-sponsored by GoCompare, while getting the opportunity of an apprenticeship placement with the Newport-based fintech company.
It’s the latest step in our commitment to becoming the employer of choice for tech careers, and helping to make south Wales a UK hotspot for technology by developing and training the best talent in the region.
Aston University has over 100 years’ experience working in close partnership with enterprise, learners and communities to nurture professionals with relevant skills as well as knowledge that can be directly applied to business and industry. In 2015 the university became the first in the UK to offer degree apprenticeships
Successful applicants will take an initial seven-week, full-time bootcamp with Aston University before starting a placement in GoCompare’s industry-leading tech team, continuing their studies through a mixture of distance and classroom learning.
