Course Overview

This work-based programme is designed to provide the essential knowledge, understanding, skills and experience required to create software solutions in a range of settings. Core areas of the programme focus on software analysis and design, testing and reviewing, tech stack, customer centric design and security.

This Apprenticeship is suitable for software engineering and development roles. It will allow apprentices to combine workplace learning opportunities with University studies, bringing together theories and practice that are relevant to the organisation in which they work

Why study with us?

  • Apprenticeships are designed by industry professionals and are aimed at employees. They can be suitable as a way to upskill existing members of staff or as a pathway for new recruits.

  • 20% of the apprenticeship will be 'off the job' – this includes work-based projects and job related activities.
  • There are no direct fees paid by the apprentice as the programme is supported through the apprenticeship levy.

Programme Duration and Delivery

It will typically take four years to complete the Apprenticeship, however, there may also be opportunities to join part way through the programme if candidates have considerable experience in a particular area. Apprentices will benefit from lectures and seminars, delivered weekly at Leeds Trinity University. On-campus learning is supported by a variety of online tasks and independent research activities which can be undertaken in the workplace



Assessment

Throughout the programme, apprentices are assessed via various methods including:

  • Reports
  • Presentations
  • Assignments
  • Work-based projects​

Apprentices will also create a portfolio of evidence throughout the programme in order to allow them to demonstrate how they have achieved the knowledge, skills and behaviours set out in the Apprenticeship standard.

The final part of the Apprenticeship is the 'end-point assessment' which is an integral part of the degree. This comprises a synoptic project undertaken in the final six months of the programme and a presentation.
