BT’s network is at the heart of everything we do; from sending a text, to air traffic control. BT is an ever-growing company which means our network is constantly evolving. Apprentices play a key part to ensure that our networks are designed, tested, built and maintained with fresh, new, innovative ideas in mind.

There is a broad array of network roles within BT. As an apprentice network engineer, you’ll have the opportunity to get involved in a number of areas including testing the latest networking technology, upgrading the existing network and the planning, installing and running of network elements.

Within the network apprenticeship, the roles are technically orientated. So, if you have an interest in what goes on 'behind the screen' and you have a real passion and drive to learn how it all works, networks is the place for you.
