Digital and Technology Solutions Professional Degree Apprenticeship (Software Engineer specialism. Level 6)

This Degree Apprenticeship programme delivers the Digital and Technology Solutions Professional (Software Engineer) standard created by The Tech Partnership. The Software Engineering specialism includes a range of modules which focus on programming skills but it also provides opportunities for apprentices to develop their workplace skills and deliver their own software solution project from conception to design, construction and testing through to final product.

The programme will enable apprentices working in an Information Technology role to develop their understanding of the theoretical and conceptual issues central to the practice of Digital and Technology Solutions. It will improve their skills in business awareness and the application of theory to professional practice. Typically studying two evenings per week over four years, apprentices will gain an honours degree alongside their experience in the workplace. A variety of online resources will also be supplied.
