Virgin Media becomes the first in the UK to organise part-time apprenticeships to mark National Apprenticeship Week and to celebrate its 10 year-long apprenticeship program.

The programme by Virgin Media is part of its initiative of making apprenticeships as diverse and inclusive as ever. To date, the programme has seen employees from Virgin Media complete 839 apprenticeships.

Virgin Media will make apprenticeship investments of about £4 million as part of this move. It aims to enhance diversity in the workplace by bringing in the widest range of talent into the business, and the entire industry.

Rt Hon Anne Milton MP, Minister for Apprenticeships & Skills commended the move by Virgin Media to invest in first-rate apprenticeships. According to her, the latest part-time programme will facilitate effortless on-the-job training and improve digital capabilities which are critical requirements of the economy. Virgin Media has an ongoing association with the Young Women’s Trust since 2016. They are the first organisation to take a pledge of commitment to boosting women’s representation in apprenticeships. A year after signing the pledge, Virgin Media achieved a 66% rise in women enrolments.

Catherine Lynch, Chief People Officer, Virgin Media, explains that learning on the job is convenient for everyone. She explained that the organisation’s flexible and diversified approach to apprenticeships is generating new career opportunities. Such opportunities include employees ranging from would-be field technicians to stalwarts of finance. According to her, now is the best time to seek employment with the organisation.
