About This Course

The Software Tester 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 Tester is to ensure that software operates as intended.

Testers typically design and prepare test plans and conduct software testing as appropriate to ensure that software is fit for purpose.

They document and report the results of testing activities.

They have a good understanding of the software lifecycle and software development practices.

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.
