Newark College has teamed up with KNOWHOW to form a unique collaboration, providing young people with paid work experience for Europe’s leading specialist electrical and telecommunications retailer and services company.
All students on the courses are employed by KNOWHOW, on a part time basis to carry out IT hardware repairs, while they study for their Level Two and Three IT Software qualifications.
Once you graduate you will either leave fully qualified with a line on your CV that proves you are a top candidate for employment, be offered a permanent position, or a place on a two-year IT apprenticeship with KNOWHOW – securing a bright future in the IT industry and enabling you to build your life in the Newark area.
KNOWHOW, which has expanded its operations in Newark, currently employs approximately 4,000 people, believes this collaboration will enable the firm to develop and employ local young talent for many years to come.
KNOWHOW General Manager Damian Rodgers said: “We are dependent on local talent to support our growing, FTSE 100 Company.
“When we took on the Mobile phone repairs from Dixons/Carphone in 2015, it was clear we needed to start to build a talent pool in the local area.
“We already had a great relationship with Newark College and we are delighted to be working together to provide these combined college and work place courses for students.”
