About Microsoft

Our exciting Apprenticeship is for people aged 16-24 years old and gives you the opportunity to start your career earlier than most. An Apprenticeship is a genuine alternative to university, we offer full training while you work helping you to get ahead in a working environment.
In addition to receiving great experience and guidance from the start, you can also avoid expensive tuition fees and start earning and learning faster than traditional education. Just imagine what you could have achieved at Microsoft in the time it takes you to complete a university degree.
We don’t believe in the traditional notion of “work experience” either. At Microsoft you are given real responsibility from the outset, with an employment contract for the full duration of your Apprenticeship and funded training relevant to your role. When you complete your Apprenticeship, you’ll receive a nationally recognised apprenticeship qualification and support to help you continue your career.
