Virgin Media is to employ 116 young people from its apprenticeship programme, as the company targets further growth in 2014.

The recruits will help meet increased demand for super-fast broadband and digital entertainment services in the UK.

They have graduated from Virgin Media apprenticeship schemes, which take between one and two years to complete and offer nationally-recognised qualifications.

Tom Mockridge, Chief Executive Officer of Virgin Media, said the company is "investing in the future" by offering young people "a great start to their careers".

"They are becoming experts and champions of the fastest broadband and the most advanced TV, so have a vital role in serving our customers throughout the country," he stated.

Chris Starling, Head of Apprenticeships for Virgin Media, said the programme - which has seen 785 participants since launching in 2008 - has "gone from strength to strength" in recent years.

The scheme offers four different types of course - Installation and Service, Network Engineer, Network Planning and Management.

"Virgin Media’s courses offer a superb insight into our business and are an excellent gateway to stimulating and prosperous careers," Mr Mockridge stated.
