Digital Degree Apprenticeships

Apprenticeship students

Apprenticeships at UWTSD provide superb opportunities for individuals to gain high level skills and knowledge in their chosen career pathway.

Apprentices will study an industry approved programme that relates directly to the skills requirements of their employer. As well as developing practical skills in their workplace, Apprentices will study towards a university qualification, which may be an HNC, HND or a Degree. Study will be day release, block release or a blend of on-line learning and tutorials depending on the programme of choice.

Apprentices can be any age but they must be employed in a role related to their study. They may be new to their role or require skills development in order to be able to progress in their workplace.

Digital Degree Apprenticeships

Please note that these programmes have all been approved and validated by the British Computer Society while the Software Engineering programme has partial Chartered Engineer accreditation with the Engineering Council. All programmes will lead to Chartered IT Professional Status (CITP)

The Apprenticeship will run over 4 years with off the job training taking place on a day release basis in the University’s IQ Building on the new SA1 Campus. Apprentices will be supported throughout their programme by a Training Adviser, who will visit the workplace regularly, providing the link between the academic studies and workplace learning, and addressing any issues that may arise during the programme.
