How to start your tech apprenticeship at ANS.

At the ANS Academy you’ll learn by getting hands-on with cutting-edge technology from day one. Working with the best engineers in the business, you’ll receive support from mentors along the way. 

Our Ofsted, award-winning Level 3 Information Communication Technician apprenticeship allows you to follow two paths; Digital Cloud Technician or Connectivity Technician, with the benefit of all our training being in-house. Both paths give you insight into the business and provide you with the skills to follow your passion. It’s not just a job, it’s a journey. Become an ANS apprentice and start yours.
