CDL is working alongside Manchester Metropolitan University, to provide you with a degree apprenticeship programme lasting four years that will enable you to kick start your career with us. You will spend one day a week at the university, and the other four days in a real business environment, here at CDL.
The taught units on the degree complement work-based projects, where you will be able to use business challenges and scenarios from your own role as part of your work. You will also have support from the university, by having regular catch-ups with a tutor in person or on the phone, depending on what works best for you.
At the end of the four years, you will not only have a BSc in Digital and Technology Solutions but you will have a huge amount of industry experience from a UK leading insurance software house.
