What will I learn?
The qualifications that you gain on an apprenticeship are important, however, much of what you learn on an apprenticeship involves work-related and transferable skills as well as hands-on experience.
Working in Monarch's IT department as an apprentice means you’re actually doing the job rather than doing classroom based activities that are a simulation of the job or just learning the theory. The role is based at Luton Airport and will involve working across the airline and engineering businesses in the office and the hangars.
As an apprentice who is employed, you are also expected to act accordingly and you will develop skills in communication, time-keeping and organisation. You’ll learn how to work with other people in the work place, how to take on responsibility, how to participate in the work place and also how to manage your finances, as you are being paid.
