Ascent Apprenticeship Program

You’ve got a passion for technology and problem-solving, and an ambition to work at the cutting edge of cybersecurity, cloud, data or full-stack development with some of the most well-known household names.

Let’s talk about a Wipro apprenticeship - and how we can help you grow there together.

Follow an alternative path into the technology industry via our four-year ‘Earn while you learn’ Ascent programme. Through our programme, you will earn a BSc(Hons) Degree in Digital and Technology Solutions from Sheffield Hallam University, fully funded, and secure a permanent, full-time role within Wipro.

Ascent is Wipro’s flagship strategic programme focused on developing the next generation of digital talent. We hire apprentices for a wide variety of roles such as digital engineering, digital testing, business analysis, technical administration, business intelligence, cybersecurity, cognitive computing, Internet of Things and blockchain engineering. Over the four years, you’ll gain exposure to a wide range of technologies and business challenges

Got questions? Well, we’ve got the answers!

How does it work?


  • If you successfully get through our initial screening, you will be invited to one of our assessment days in Reading where you will be interviewed, take part in a group exercise and learn a little bit more about our apprenticeship programme.
  • On appointment, you will undergo a two-week company orientation. You begin your role with Foundations of Technology Solutions, an intensive 12-week training course with Sheffield Hallam University, that will provide you with an exciting opportunity to work on ‘live’ client projects and begin your on-the-job learning.
  • Each stage of the apprenticeship comprises three six-month blocks. This pattern of study is designed to fit around full-time employment and blends distance learning, work-based study and attendance at on-campus study days. This approach allows apprentices to combine the two roles. First, by learning relevant skills and gaining valuable experience on client projects, with ongoing support from experts in your chosen field and an assigned mentor, you will be a fully-fledged member of our team. Second, you will participate in a learning community of peers (including other apprentices and graduates) who are broadening and deepening their professional knowledge.
  • After four years, you’ll be awarded your degree in BSc (Honours) in Digital & Technology Solutions and become a highly skilled multi-discipline IT consultant.



We’re looking for future leaders, idea generators, and strategic thinkers. If you have passion, a sharp mind and an appetite to grow every day, Wipro can help you make it happen.
