Digital and Technology Solutions Degree Apprenticeship, BSc (Hons)

This Degree Apprenticeship covers subjects such as cyber security, software, web development and data management on four specialist academic and professional pathways.

This course provides employees with the opportunity to achieve a degree alongside work, whilst offering employers the chance to train and retain valued members of staff and fill the skills gaps that are holding back their businesses.

The IT industry is fast-moving and ever-evolving, so apprentices on this course receive a grounding in new and emerging technologies so they can respond to threats and opportunities in a considered and competent manner. It is taught through a blend of day-release attendance at UCW, e-learning and workplace projects.

The course is split into four areas of occupational specialism: business analyst, cybersecurity analyst, data analyst and software engineer.
