About This Course

The Software Developer apprenticeship was produced in collaboration with employers to create a course that would not only teach lots of great new skills to the learner but would also have a useful and long-lasting impact on their business.

The primary role of a software developer is to build and test simple, high-quality code across front end, logic and database layers.
A developer will typically be working as part of a larger team, in which they will have responsibility for some of the straightforward elements of the overall project.
The developer will need to be able to interpret design documentation and specifications.
The customer requirements will typically be defined and agreed upon by more experienced or specialist members of the team, such as a business analyst or technical architect.

The challenge most small and local businesses face is that hiring a professional full-time is too expensive but hiring a company to do it may become even more costly.

So, what can you do?

Well, by having one of your employees enrolling an apprenticeship backed by the government or by hiring an apprentice into your ranks you are getting the best of both worlds.

You get to grow a professional from the inside, guide them by your company`s standards, and we will train them on the skills that will help your business grow to the next level.

While saving the time you would waste learning everything by yourself, you also save money, as one apprentice isn`t nearly as expensive as a professional.

Individual employers will set the selection criteria including relevant qualifications and experience. The apprentice is likely to be required to demonstrate an aptitude for functional maths and competence in written and spoken English.
