BSc 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  ‘Tech Partnership Degrees’ to develop a range of digital degree apprenticeships.

Some universities’ digital degree apprenticeship programmes are accredited by employers as Tech Industry Gold, so they meet industry standards for quality, content and delivery. Tech Partnership Degrees only promotes degree apprenticeship programmes which are accredited as Tech Industry Gold, or are in the process of acquiring this accreditation.

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 / positions
  • New knowledge – spread new academic and vocational knowledge among existing staff members
  • Skills gap solution – fill employers’ higher-level tech skills gaps easily
