About this course
This Professional Degree Apprenticeship is designed to produce future Digital and Technology Solutions Professionals and Leaders.

It has been awarded the Tech Industry Gold Accreditation by TechSkills, an organisation that brings together employers and universities to create highly skilled digital graduates.

The Digital and Technology Solutions Professional Degree Apprenticeship blends online learning, face-to-face workshops and on-the-job experience to transform learners into highly skilled tech professionals. The Degree Apprenticeship is available in four specialisms:
  • Network Engineer
    Software Engineer
    IT Consultant
    Data Analyst

This programme develops core technical skills, knowledge and behaviours for the development of innovative digital solutions.

Further specialism modules offer opportunities to develop technical areas of relevance to the learners' roles.

Who it's a good fit for?
  • New staff focussing on a plan to pursue a career associated with the technical department of the business
    Existing staff wishing to expand their skills and career together with gaining academic skills and qualifications while studying to degree level
    Existing staff that would benefit from a comprehensive personal development plan to advance their skills to a higher level

As part of their programme learners will complete:
  • Fourteen learning knowledge modules teaching theory and practical application. These are primarily taught online and are supported by classroom training workshops. Five modules are taught at level 4, five at level 5 and four at level 6
    Work-based portfolios and projects will be completed at work, over the course of the programme to demonstrate practical abilities.

Microsoft Azure Certification

An example route of this, for Data Analysts, would be for learners to complete the Microsoft Azure Fundamentals course in Level 4 and then the Microsoft Data Engineering on Microsoft Azure at level 5. Completion of both these exams would result in the learners completing the Microsoft learning journey of Microsoft Certified Azure Data Engineer Associate.

At Level 6 there will be additional Microsoft preparation content available if the learner and employer feel that there is a specific need.
