Network engineer

Overview

Network Engineers are responsible for all aspects of an organisation’s communications network. They need to be able to understand how to set up a network, configure cloud software, and provide users with technical advice and guidance.

Candidates on this apprenticeship will learn how to ensure the networks they create remain operational and available to all staff. They will learn how to design simple networks and will be able to install and configure network components such as switches, routers, and firewalls.
