No other apprenticeship provider puts as much care and attention into training their apprentices
Our candidates typically complete close to 1,000 hours of learning by the time they complete their apprenticeship, including 500 hours before you even meet them.
Candidates go through a rigorous selection process. Every term, over 1,200 people express interest in studying with us. Typically, only 12 candidates make it onto our Foundation programme.
Employers appreciate the diversity of our candidates, their high level of preparation, their willingness to learn, and the continuing opportunities for professional development with us well beyond the end of the apprenticeship.

What if we want to retrain our own staff?
We welcome candidates sponsored by their current employers and, just like any other candidate, we will give them all the support they need to prepare for their apprenticeship.
What do apprentices learn?
What about other software stacks?
Given a sufficient number of learners, we can tailor an apprenticeship curriculum to your needs. We also run a Machine Learning apprenticeship for more experienced developers.
