App developers Mapway are launching an apprenticeship programme in conjunction with Manchester Metropolitan University.

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.

App firm Mapway appoints Marketing Manager

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.
