IT Sales Professional Degree Apprenticeship

IT Sales Professional Degree Apprenticeship

The IT Sales Professional Level 6 apprenticeship develops the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in a Technical Sales career. The primary role of an IT Technical Salesperson is to sell a company’s technical products and services. They need a good knowledge and understanding of the portfolio of technologies that are available. They work to maintain good relationships with existing clients, gaining repeat business wherever possible from customers both internal and external, or internationally. They also approach potential customers with the aim of winning new business. They maintain a thorough understanding of existing technologies and those that are emerging.

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE APPRENTICESHIP?

20% of the apprenticeship must be done away from the apprentices’ work to count towards their off-the-job training – this can be a mix of face to face and virtual classrooms, projects, distance learning and meetings with their dedicated Learning and Development Coach.
