Investing in local tech talent

Date published

Congratulations RDT apprentices!

As part of RDT’s commitment to supporting young local tech talent and to support our strategy of growing organically we are really pleased to be able to congratulate Anthony Wilson and Jack Greenhalgh on passing their final exams.

Anthony and Jack joined RDT in May last year and embarked on an apprenticeship programme supported by QA. The course is a combination of on the job learning and classroom based teaching, both scored highly in their exams and completed the course well ahead of the expected completion date. They are now working on personal and technical objectives around being completely integrated within the RDT team structure for their second year with the company.

The aim of the programme at RDT is to develop young people with potential to enable them to work and learn at the same time. Previous success stories include Adam Page (an Apprentice who joined us in 2011) who has recently been working with the Technical director on refactoring and is now working with the livewire team on a client project and Ida Tucker & Sohail Nasir who joined us as graduates in 2013 and 2011 respectively; both working closely with clients.
