BT has delivered apprenticeships as an employer-provider for over 60 years. We deliver a small number of specialist programmes ourselves eg. Openreach’s telecoms engineer programme and we fully outsource over 70 programmes. Apprenticeships are a core part of BT’s Talent Strategy and reflect its ambitions to ensure we maintain and develop a highly skilled workforce; build a diverse and inclusive culture; and promote social mobility.
