3aaa Apprenticeships Derby Academy Are Supporting Women into the Technology Industry

Natalie Sharp, 3aaa Apprentice at our Derby training academy loves the practical aspect to IT and has an undoubted passion for the subject.  She likes to be completely hands-on with a computer and enjoys building and maintaining them.

She has decided to undertake the 3aaa Apprenticeship in Technology, during which she will not only gain around 12 nationally recognised qualifications, but she will gain highly valued experience in the workplace. The 3aaa Apprenticeship in IT is a fantastic way for anybody to start their career in technology and we are strong believers that your gender should play no role in your career ambitions and your passions as an individual.

Since forming in 2008, 3aaa Apprenticeships have supported over 5,000 young people across England in starting their careers and at least 1,000 of these were female. We are aiming for a fifty-fifty split and will continue campaigning to get more women into IT. We are always looking for people who have a passion for the Technology industry, to take the first steps to building a lifelong career for themselves.

Samuel Thomas, Apprentice Intake Executive for the Derby 3aaa Apprenticeships Academy added: “I’ve recently recruited the first female into my applicant pool at 3aaa Derby and it has been so enlightening and refreshing to see a female wanting to ‘make a name for herself’ in the industry.  IT shouldn’t be perceived as a male dominated industry, there is a definite need for more females in IT departments throughout the UK.

I believe it’s essential that there is a good balance of male and females within the IT sector. It brings about contrasting ways of thinking and thus, fresh approaches to work can come to the fore.”
