Designed in partnership with industry, our BSc in IT: Software Development graduate apprenticeship (IT:SD) gives employers the opportunity for their IT professionals to gain an undergraduate degree over 48 months.
Our flexible programme suits a wide variety of technology roles and experience levels. Apprentices can tailor course content by choosing from a selection of module options during the programme, ensuring their study is relevant to your organisation.
Our unique approach to work-based learning helps apprentices rapidly evidence their competency, whatever their role. Course content is primarily delivered asynchronously, online. As a result, only a small commitment for regular on-campus time from the apprentice is needed, helping minimise the impact on your business
We focus on developing apprentices that can quickly add value to your organisation. We start with the fundamentals, providing a solid foundation for future learning and helping apprentices become productive to their employer.
Course content has been developed in partnership with industry and is designed to equip apprentices with knowledge in contemporary tools and technology. We do not just focus on tech. Our approach to work-based learning helps develop more rounded professionals, with a wide range of soft skills that enable apprentices to contribute widely to your organisation.
Our IT:SD programme is delivered by our dedicated Graduate Apprenticeship team, including colleagues with significant industrial experience. Apprentices are guided by members of academic staff as well as an assigned Learning Adviser.
You’ll receive regular updates on the programme, helping you support your apprentices through their journey. There are ongoing opportunities to contribute to programme development to ensure your needs continue to be met.
