Are you a small to medium-sized business looking to grow? Start unlocking the power of digital

Here at the Digital Greenhouse, we have been working with our digital learning partner Avado Learning to provide a number of fully-funded upskilling opportunities for all small to medium-sized Guernsey businesses over the past year. These have been very successful and proved valuable, if you want your business to be truly driven you're going to need some in-house experts! This is made possible through the SMART Guernsey programme, powered by Agilisys. Committed to supporting Guernsey's economic development, creating significant and new opportunities for on-island businesses, entrepreneurs, employees and students.

Supporting Your Business Growth

The apprenticeship programme can be used to upskill an existing member of your staffing team who is looking to go into a new or growing area within the business.  Or, you could use the programme to take on a new member of staff and enable them to gain qualifications whilst working. Train them from the ground up or develop their skills even further with a fully-funded digital apprenticeship!

"Better data means better decisions. Give your employees the tools they need to become problem-solvers that will guide your business with data-driven insights."

What is a digital apprenticeship?

Digital apprenticeships give learners the skills they need to understand your company’s data. They’ll learn to give insights by gathering, cleaning, and analysing data, and gain valuable qualifications while they do it.

And because they’ll be working in your business, they’ll really get to grips with your workflow, not just the theory. So you’ll start seeing the benefits right away.

What are the different types of digital apprenticeships?

Whether you’re looking to train a beginner or someone who already has some in house experience, we’ve got a variety of roles covered with the apprenticeships below.
