In January, the company was accredited by Google with a ‘Top Developer’ status.
Apprentices on their higher-level apprenticeship programme in mobile app development will work at Mapway’s head office near Manchester Airport while studying for a BSc (Hons) Degree in Digital and Technology Solutions.
The company has chosen the run-up to National Apprenticeship Week (14th-18th March) to launch the programme.
Mapway CEO David James said: “The value of apprentices is something I’ve always believed strongly in.
“Many years ago I completed an unofficial apprenticeship that enabled me to switch careers from a chef to a developer.
“Without this option of work-based learning I wouldn’t be where I am today.”
“As a company we’ve seen first-hand the value apprentices can bring but we’ve yet to expand this success across our mobile development team.”
Mapway will launch their talent search at the Degree and Higher-Level Apprenticeship Open Evening on Tuesday 15th March from 5pm to 7.30pm at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Business School.
