Why choose our Software Engineer Level 4 apprenticeship?

Our Software Engineer Level 4 Apprenticeship gives learners advance skills and technical grounding to design, test and maintain software and web systems. Learners will also gain an understanding on advanced programming, systems and software development projects.

Software Development is at the heart of digital transformation. With demand for services to be consumed online by both clients and employees increasing exponentially, software developers are in high demand. Software Engineers build and test high-quality code across front end, logic and database layers.

QA's Software Engineer Level 4 apprenticeship programme enables the apprentice to:
  • Build advanced skills and technical grounding to design, test and maintain software and web systems.
  • Receive training on end-to-end software dev stack, as opposed to hyper-focusing on one area of development.
  • Develop more advanced applications.

Tools and technologies learned:

Learners will learn to use HTML5, JavaScript and CSS3.

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?
