The 2017 Insurance Practitioner Apprenticeship, commences on Friday 15th September, with inductions taking place at IT Sligo throughout the day. Ireland’s only level 8-degree apprenticeship is now in its second year, and up to 100 apprentices, from across the country will be starting the programme this year.
This one of a kind, ‘earn and learn’, three-year programme, enables apprentices to work for an insurance employer, earn a salary, while also studying for a BA Hons in Insurance Practice.
The Government funded apprenticeship is run in partnership with IT Sligo, and apprentices complete the degree portion online through distance learning over three years.
The Insurance Institute released research earlier this year which found that *62% of young adults surveyed stated that they would consider an apprenticeship, as an alternative to going to college, if it was in an area that interested them.
Findings also showed that just over half of parents (55%) would encourage their child to undertake an apprenticeship.Who:
