Course Overview

This apprenticeship is delivered through blended work-based learning, You will begin your apprenticeship with a seven-week technical training block on campus, known as the boot camp, where you will develop the core computing and business skills needed to become an effective team member in the workplace.


Then you’ll spend the majority of your time in the workplace doing a real full-time job as well as studying part-time. Your learning will be made up of a combination of online seminars that take place outside of office hours as well as four days on campus every six months where you can meet face-to-face with your peers and our academics.


Study time is structured to fit around your job, as are exams. Your apprenticeship is designed in partnership with your employer, so you don’t need to worry about your work and study commitments clashing.


Each six-month block of modules requires up to two days for examinations. Your employer will know about these days well in advance and will give you study leave so you can prepare. You will also be assessed through coursework, project reports, group projects and presentations.


As part of the apprenticeship, you will undergo an end-point assessment to achieve the government approved Standard for a Digital and Technology Solutions Degree Apprenticeship.
