Level 4 Network Engineer

What is a Network Engineer?

Network Engineers harness technology to connect people and organisations. As we all become more and more dependent on our digital networks, Network Engineers are in huge demand. 

As an apprentice Network Engineer you’ll learn how to design, develop, and maintain networks and systems. The programme can lead to a brilliant career in private, public, or voluntary organisations of all sizes.

What will I learn?

The Network Engineer programme will help you to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours (KSBs) you need. These KSBs have been carefully developed with input from leading employers, including IBM, BT, Microsoft, HP, and the Chartered Institute for IT.  

Tiro uses cutting-edge technologies and techniques to create an immersive learning experience. You’ll cover modules in Software, Systems Development, Cyber Security, Networks, Databases and much more. Everything you’ll need to become a brilliant Network Engineer.  

The programme is ideal for both existing staff and new recruits. It takes 21-24 months to complete.

What next?

Completing this apprenticeship can lead to a wide range of job opportunities within IT. Successful apprentices can often find themselves fast-tracked into senior Network Engineering and management roles.  

Once you’ve qualified, you can apply to enter the register of IT Technicians 

Tiro is a Certified Cisco Networking Academy, and the Network Engineer programme is mapped to the Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) exam. Once you’ve completed the programme, you will have the option to sit the CCNA exam and become certified (if funding available). 

Some people go on to a higher level apprenticeship, such as the degree-level Digital Technology and Solutions Professional (Level 6).
