Training & Profiles

We'll give you the chance to take control of your own career. It's up to you to decide where and how far you go. But we'll also give you all the support you need to get there - whether it's training, career advice or encouragement.

It starts on day one, with your induction. This is your chance to get a better idea of who we are, what we're trying to achieve as a business, and where you could fit in. You'll also get the chance to meet your fellow new graduates, and build an instant network across different areas of the business.

Then the real training starts: 20 days of formal courses in total, spread out over your time on the scheme. This isn't just training for training's sake. It's been designed to give you the skills you'll need to get ahead in BT. And it's also a great opportunity to find out what it's like to work in other parts of the business and meet other graduates.
