What is an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a job where you learn, gain experience and get paid. You’re an employee with a contract of employment and holiday leave. By the end of an apprenticeship, you'll have the right skills and knowledge needed for to be a confident software developer. It’s funded from contributions made by the government and your employer, making it a highly accessible way to fund your development.
Anyone aged 16 or over can be eligible to be an apprentice, as long as you're living in England and not already be in full-time education.
Your learning journey
Once your employer gives you the go-ahead, we'll get you on board. We'll make sure you're on the right programme, get to know you and your goals and tailor the programme to you and your role. We'll also provide information, advice and guidance to help you navigate the initial stages of your apprenticeship.
2. On Programme
Depending on the bespoke programme we've designed for you and your employer, you'll gain practical knowledge through a combination of immersive and expert-led Engineering Masterclasses, Language Tracks, certifications, Human Skills workshops and – if needed – support with English and Maths. Most importantly, all of your learning is geared towards putting what you learn into practice in the context of your workplace.
You've come so far! During your 13-month programme, you'll have learned highly practical skills and developed the key behaviours – and confidence – to excel as a software developer. Along the way, you'll have developed a portfolio of evidence, showing how you're applying your new knowledge in your workplace. At the end of your programme, you'll have Gateway, where we'll ensure you're ready to prove what you can do at your End Point Assessment.
4. End Point Assessment
It's time to prove what you can do! At your End Point Assessment or "EPA", you will show off your portfolio of evidence, complete a short synoptic project related to the skills you have learned and, finally, attend a structured interview which will be your opportunity to show off all of the knowledge, skills and behaviours you have learned with us.
How long is the programme?
It's 13 months long, excluding End Point Assessment.
What are the entry requirements?
To be eligible, you need to be...
- Aged 16 or over
- Not in full-time education
- Living in England
If you haven't already achieved Level 2 English and Maths (for example, an O-Level or GCSE) will need to do so before taking your End Point Assessment. We'll support you with this, and it won't cost you anything.
What's an End Point Assessment?
Your End Point Assessment ("EPA") is your opportunity to demonstrate what you've learned and how you've put it into practice at work. We'll help you build a showcase portfolio throughout your programme, formed largely of work-based projects. You'll also complete a synoptic project and finish with a structured interview. These, along with an employer reference, determine your final grade.
How are the programmes structured?
Every programme is bespoke. That said, you can expect your programme to be formed of a combination of expert-led Engineering Masterclasses, Language Tracks, professional certifications, functional skills, human skills workshops and wider learning. If you're on ReSkill, you'll complete a 9-14 week coding bootcamp towards the beginning of your programme.
We work with employers to assemble a programme of Masterclasses as well as support with key functional skills and developing workplace behaviours which will help learners develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours you need to accelerate your careers.
