CPL Online, a division of the CPL Training Group, has recruited nine new apprentices to join its team.

Two of the recruits, James Marshall and Megan Jones, have joined as part of a joint apprenticeship initiative between CPL Online and Microsoft and are undertaking a Microsoft Level 3 – IT Systems & Networking Apprenticeship.

Charlotte Jones joins as an ELearning Support Apprentice working towards a Business Level 3 Apprenticeship. Five recruits - James San, Emily Powis, Owen Bayley, Sean Davies and Shane Farmer - also recently joined as apprentices under QA’s Software and Web Development, Level 3 Programme, whilst Louise Jones is undertaking a Software and Web Development Level 3 Apprenticeship. 

The recruitment is part of a strategy by the company to develop talented young individuals from the Wirral and surrounding areas and steer them into technical and creative roles within the organisation.

David Dasher, director of CPL Online, said: “There is a huge pool of talent on the Wirral and through these apprenticeships we can offer a first step for young people looking to develop careers in a whole range of business areas. We are committed to supporting young people get onto the career ladder and have seen over the years that some of our most creative and technically brilliant coders and developers started with us straight from school or college.”
