The digital skills gap is an ever-growing problem the UK is currently facing. Finding the right digital talent to embed immediately into your organisation can be difficult. risual are passionate about bridging the digital skills gap, driving new talent to businesses in the UK, and building exciting careers for young people.

In 2018, VuePoint successfully hired its first apprentice. Since then, the apprentice, Harry, has contributed to the digital success of the business, continued to develop his skills, and is now successfully leading a team of developers and infrastructure technicians.

On 21st November 2019, the Inspire 19 Business Awards hosted its annual incredible ceremony which celebrates businesses and talent across North Hampshire. We are delighted to announce that Harry has been acknowledged for his impact, outstanding contributions, and exceptional progress in his skills and development and therefore has been awarded the prestigious Apprentice of the Year Award! We are so incredibly proud of Harry’s development and contribution, a well and truly deserved award.

Harry has now been in his position as an IT Apprentice for over a year, from the start Harry got to undertake real business impacting tasks. Throughout the apprenticeship, Harry has been mentored not just by in house staff but by risual’s team of Assessors who are constantly on hand to support the apprentices.

Harry said, “risual have been great at supporting all areas of my apprenticeships and prepared me well for interviews and other challenges I’ve faced”
