KN CircetTallaght, DublinApprenticeship
Apprenticeship Commences in January 2022
Closing Date for Applications: 12th December 2021
The apprenticeship in Telecommunications and Data Network Engineering involves a 24-month apprenticeship contract with Circet, which incorporates both on-the-job and off-the-job elements. Over the lifetime of the apprenticeship a total of eight blocks, each of two weeks’ duration, will be spent attending class and practical laboratories at TU Dublin. 
In addition, during the on-the-job elements, a significant period of time will be spent in the form of work based learning with the employer in order to complete the Programme modules. Four modules will be completed in year 1 and four in year 2.
People seeking skilled employment often face a challenge that relevant work experience is a prerequisite for many jobs. But for many people, including school leavers, it is difficult to gain the required experience without being in the workplace. An apprenticeship offers the opportunity to gain the knowledge, skills, and experience needed for entry or advancement into a particular skilled career field. This two-year programme was developed in collaboration with the telecommunications industry and is designed to take a low skills entry level position to full occupational proficiency.
Working under the supervision and guidance of some of the most experienced professionals in the country, apprentices will learn to hone the skills required to have a successful career in Circet.
Higher Certificate in Engineering in Telecommunications and Data Network Engineering (Level 6)
At the completion of the new Apprenticeship Programme, the apprentice will receive a QQI accredited Higher Certificate in Telecommunications and Data Network Engineering which will be a nationally recognised qualification. This award will ensure that the holder has proficiency as a Field Technician in the discipline.

  • Applicants must hold a Leaving Certificate with a minimum of Grade O6/H7 or better in 5 subjects in the Leaving Certificate including English or Irish and Mathematics. A Pass in Foundation Level Irish (F3) is acceptable for this course. Alternatively, an applicant can hold a level of qualification which is deemed equivalent to the requirements in the Leaving Certificate.
