Employing new mainframe talent – looking at universities


Presentation

Manchester Metropolitan University was one of the first to offer Degree Apprenticeships. We now offer a pathway tailored for mainframe professionals. I will talk about how we made this happen, including the topics we cover, the support we have received and some of the challenges we have faced. I will discuss how the skills gained through a Degree Apprenticeship compare to those gained through other routes.
