Distec Launches Apprenticeship Programme

The Manchester company is looking to help successful candidates to build their career and provide employment as furlough comes to an end

June 2021 – Manchester technology solutions specialist Distec has launched an apprenticeship programme and is looking for an Apprenticeship Administrator to join their team in Irlam.

The programme includes all aspects of the sales process including administrative tasks, quotations, sales and purchase order processing, booking goods in and out of stock and handling customer and supplier enquiries.

The programme is a Business Administration Level 3 Apprenticeship which has a 98% overall success rate with over 3,000 qualification per year. The knowledge, skills and behaviours learned throughout the apprenticeship is tested by an independent End Point Assessor and apprentices will produce a summative portfolio and synoptic project at the end of the term.

Apprenticeships are a valuable opportunity for both the employer and employee. For the employee they are able to achieve qualifications learn valuable skills and earn at the same time. Apprentices also improve their long-term career prospects, with apprentices earning £100,000 over their careers more than those without an apprenticeship or equivalent qualification. For employers they are able to work with a young and dynamic employee who will bring new ideas to the table. In fact, 96% of employers have recorded at least one benefit from hiring apprentices and 74% have actually said that an apprentice has improved a product or service quality.

Noel Sheppard General Manager at Distec said: “We are really excited to be beginning this programme as furlough ends and the country comes out of lockdown. We want to be able to give opportunities to young people to give them the knowledge and skills needed to progress their careers. This apprenticeship programme will equip those successful with the tools to have a successful business career.”
