New Degree Apprenticeship with PwC

New degree apprenticeship with PwC launched
The University of Leeds has partnered with PwC – one of the UK’s largest graduate employers – to create a new fully-funded technology degree apprenticeship.  Starting in September 2018 BSc Computer Science (Digital & Technology Solutions) will initially accept 40 students onto the four year course which combines undergraduate study with practical work-based projects at PwC in Leeds.

The University and the professional services firm have worked closely to develop a syllabus which prepares students with the right skills for the future, in an area which is becoming increasingly in demand.  Find out more.

PwC Insight Week

It is my pleasure to inform you that PwC has now opened its applications to our Business Insight Week and Big Data Camp 2017! These week-long paid summer placements for Year 12 students aim to give young people an opportunity to gain access to professional services and develop both their employability skills and confidence to help secure a role within the organisation longer term.  

We have around 150 places across 18 offices in the UK (5 offices in the North) and we will fully support each student through buddying and employability skills tutoring. Each student will gain an insight into PwC through a full induction and time spent shadowing a current employee to see first-hand what life at PwC is all about. Beyond the week, successful students will have the opportunity to be fast tracked onto one of our longer term programmes for 2017 or beyond. The weeks will be running this year on 31st July, 7th August and 21st August.

We would like to ask you to share the details of this exciting new programme with your students who may find it of interest. They’ll need to be in Year 12 and expected to achieve a minimum of a 96 UCAS tariff. They also need to demonstrate a genuine interest in PwC and the world of business. Students can apply now online but the deadline is the 28th February

Students can apply online through our website here:http://www.pwc.co.uk/schools/work-experience
