A major Glasgow employer is helping to create the next generation of technology professionals as it launches its new Graduate Apprentice Scheme. The Student Loans Company (SLC), which employs 1,700 people in Glasgow, has six opportunities for graduate apprentices who will gain a degree in software development and learn on the job as they work as part of the SLC team. Based in the organisation’s technology group, the apprentices will help to develop the systems and software SLC uses to effectively deliver student finance across the UK. They will split their week between work and study, undertaking a degree programme at the University of Glasgow which has been designed with input from SLC. Lyndsey Gaja, SLC’s Organisational Design and Development Manager said:
Chris Skidmore, Minister of State for Universities, Science, Research and Innovation, today (1 March) visited the Student Loan Company (SLC) headquarters in Glasgow. The Student Loan Company is responsible for administering all student loans across the UK and employs 3300 people in total, 1700 of them in Glasgow.
