FIT ICT Associate Professional

Posted by Francis O' Toole on April 20, 2015

The FIT ICT Associate Professional is a new IT apprenticeship-style (learn & earn) pathway to a career in the technology sector.

Over 7,000 jobs are currently available in ICT sector – as highlighted by the FIT ICT Skills Audit 2014 – 75% of which are at entry and competent levels.

IBM has been involved with FastTrack to IT (FIT) for many years, as one part of an extensive programme to hire and develop the skilled people needed for their operations in Ireland and were delighted when FIT approached them to help with the development of their new ICT Associate Professional Programme and to support its launch in December 2014.

For this certification programme FIT has produced an innovative syllabus focusing on equipping the IT professionals of the future with the skills to meet the business needs of today and tomorrow.

It draws on FIT’s own extensive experience in working directly with IT companies and its close collaboration with government departments and national education and training agencies.
