As part of an innovative Technology Employer Academy programme, run in partnership with Derby College Group (DCG), IT students complete a 17-week placement at RDS Global’s headquarters to enhance their studies and acquire skills and experience that will stand them in good stead for future employment and, crucially, make them highly employable.
Each academic year, the award-winning company welcomes four groups of students — culminating in a graduation ceremony celebrating the completion of the programme.
The project results in an array of benefits, with the graduates experiencing the world of work and engaging in the highly-relevant and evolving technology sector, while RDS Global are able to increase the talent pool available to the company in the future.
RDS Global firector Andy Flinn said: “Developing people, enhancing skills and building for the future within our industry are all elements that are embedded in the core values at RDS.”
“However what is needed is action and in congratulating our latest group of graduates we’re demonstrating our commitment in this crucial area.”
