Gold degree apprenticeships

Revolutionising the way young people get started on a tech career

To help companies attract and retain tech specialists, leading employers and universities have collaborated through the Tech Partnership to develop a range of digital degree apprenticeships. Each university’s digital degree apprenticeships programme is accredited by employers as Tech Industry Gold, so it meets industry standards for quality, content and delivery.

To join a programme, candidates need to satisfy the employer’s recruitment requirements as well as the associated university’s entry criteria. Once accepted, they are equipped with a range of skills and knowledge: technical skills, of course, but also the business and interpersonal skills that are equally valued by employers.


Why degree apprenticeships?

  • On-the-job training – delivered and tailored to business need
  • High-calibre candidates – find new graduate-level recruits
  • New knowledge – spread new academic and vocational knowledge among existing staff members
  • Skills gap solution – fill your higher-level tech skills gaps easily
