My apprenticeship has been the best decision I have ever made to date, I have developed both personally and professionally and I really enjoy every aspect of the work I do.

I have been given responsibilities that I didn’t know I was capable of, as well as knowledge and hands on practical experience. I have gained confidence in interacting with clients and colleagues and made so many friends along the way.

It’s been a wonderful experience learning on the job and in the training room in such a busy, stimulating, and technical industry as the Data Comms Network Industry.

The TDNE/Onnec apprenticeship programme has provided me with the professional skills required for a successful career in every aspect of the data network industry.I would definitely recommend the TDNE/Onnec apprenticeship to anyone thinking of a career in the Data Comms industry.

“The TDNE apprenticeship has given us an incredible avenue to bring new talent into the telecoms sector, enabling candidates to build the skills necessary to support our business now and into the future.


Being able to onboard apprentices, and have them learn through the programme and quickly apply that knowledge on the job means our apprentices have huge opportunity to develop into successful Field Engineers or indeed follow numerous other career paths with us.”

We are delighted to have been involved in the evolution of this apprenticeship to date, it is a game changer!”
