Business Associate

Think of it as a mini MBA. This programme turns apprentices into leaders – ones with the skills, knowledge and behaviours businesses need to thrive.

Overview

Over 14 months, apprentices uncover the inner workings of successful companies, from understanding the business environment to navigating regulations, project management and personal development.

Every two months, apprentices dive into a masterclass. These full-day sessions allow everybody to come together to learn, collaborate, and grow their confidence and networks. In between masterclasses, apprentices apply and refine their new skills while making an impact at work, with regular opportunities to reflect with their industry-expert coach.

As apprentices progress, they build up a personal portfolio before testing everything they’ve learned with a real-world project.

My apprenticeship with Multiverse has been one of the best things to happen to me since I dropped out of my final year in school. It's immeasurably increased my self-worth and confidence – and proved that you can achieve success no matter what obstacles you face.

I always wanted to work in tech but while studying in Uganda I had limited access to technology. As soon as I returned to the UK, I dived into tech. Multiverse gave me access to potential employers and ensured I had the right tools to succeed.
