What to expect
Your very first week of your apprenticeship will be remote, so you’ll be working through your induction into Capita Consulting from home. This will include presentations from leaders at Capita, leaders of the Digital & Tech Consultant Apprenticeship Scheme, and from graduates who’ll share some of the digital squad projects they’ve worked on. You’ll also meet your buddies, mentor and trainee support team, and there’ll be some team building activities too.
The following six weeks residential training will give you a launchpad into the Digital and Technology course at Ada National College for Digital Skills located in the Manchester Technology Centre. You’ll be studying the first three modules covering computer programming (Python for data science), project management (including Agile) and database systems, and accommodation will be provided near Ada during those weeks.
Following those six weeks, you’ll then join Capita Consulting for your first rotation, which will be in either the Transformation, Cloud Engineering/Cyber or Data & AI guild.
After your first rotation, you’ll follow a block release schedule consisting of seven weeks working on your projects at Capita Consulting, and one week back at Ada.
Your tuition will span 18 experience design, cloud engineering, data science, cyber, project delivery, business analysis, research, innovation, and entrepreneurship-related subjects over three years.
On successful completion of your three-year apprenticeship, you’ll become a foundation level consultant in one of our three Capita Consulting guilds.
What skills you need
You need BBC at A level or the equivalent of 112 UCAS points to enrol on the Digital & Tech Degree Apprenticeship, and then your Ada Digital and Tech tuition and on-the-job training will give you all the skills you need to succeed as a consultant. We’re simply looking for people who are passionate about problem solving, have an appetite for learning, are adaptable and enjoy collaborating with others. Our consultants are open, proactive, and supportive of others, so if you think you fit, it would be great to hear from you.

Where you’ll be working
This apprenticeship is a combination of office and home-based working. On average you’ll be based two days a week at one of our three Capita Consulting hubs — either Birmingham, London or Newcastle — so ideally you won’t be too far away from one of these locations.
