‘Tech Partnership Degrees’ is the not-for-profit organisation which unites employers and universities to improve the flow of talent into the digital workforce.

With strategic leadership from our Employer Board, we bring together employers and universities to create the best graduates for digital careers. As a UK Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Body (PSRB), we operate Tech Industry Gold, the industry accreditation for digital and tech higher education, creating high quality degrees and degree apprenticeships that meet employer-defined standards.

Tech Industry Gold programmes have been delivering outstanding academic and employment outcomes for over a decade thanks to the commitment of universities across the UK and the active support of over 200 employers.


‘Tech Partnership Degrees’ took forward the Higher Education work of the Tech Partnership, which closed in September 2018. This includes the industry-accredited Tech Industry Gold degrees – IT Management for Business (ITMB) and Software Engineering for Business (SEfB) – and the Tech Industry Gold degree apprenticeships.
