Twelve new students have joined a Fujitsu apprenticeship programme as part of the firm's strategy to help boost talent in the technology sector here.

The apprentices are part of the Department for the Economy's IT and Telecoms Professional Apprenticeship Programme and will study at Belfast Metropolitan College and the North West Regional College.

Louise Hull, apprentice programme manager at Fujitsu, said the scheme will "inspire and equip" the future technology talent pool here to fill an additional 4,000 jobs expected to become available within the next 10 years.
