Firebrand shortlisted for Digital Apprenticeship Provider of the Year 2018




As part of the Inaugural AAC Apprenticeship Awards, Firebrand Training has been shortlisted for the Digital Apprenticeship Provider of the Year.

This shortlist recognises Firebrand’s instrumental work in bringing new Digital Apprenticeships to our apprenticeship employers.

Since 2012, employers have enrolled over 300 digital apprentices on Firebrand’s custom programmes, like Azure Network Engineer, Microsoft Software Tester and Google Cloud Infrastructure Technician.

Gavin Freed, Chairman of Firebrand Apprenticeships, said:

“We’ve worked exceptionally hard to provide our apprentices and UK employers with the highest quality of programmes and I’m personally delighted to see Firebrand shortlisted for this award.

“Firebrand will continue to work towards more impressive milestones in 2018, including graduating the UK’s first cyber security apprentices!”


This shortlist also recognises Firebrand’s decades of experience across accelerated cyber security training. As a result, the UK will see its first cyber security apprentices graduate from their apprenticeship programmes in 2018.

Firebrand is also working with organisations like the National Autistic Society to ensure its Digital Apprenticeships are accessible to a wide range of individuals with different learning styles, paving the way for a diverse IT industry.

The winner of the Digital Apprenticeship Provider of the Year will be announced at the AAC Awards Dinner on Monday 5th March.
