Key facts

An apprenticeship is a job with training, combining practical experience with academic learning.


At least 20% of your contracted working hours will be classed as 'off-the-job'. This time will be dedicated to developing the knowledge and skills needed to meet the requirements of the apprenticeship, and therefore are not part of your usual work duties.


The off-the-job learning will be delivered through online University-led learning sessions and activities, one-day workshops, and practical learning experiences in your usual work setting.


Our Digital & Technology Solutions Degree Apprenticeship is delivered in a blended format combining teaching weeks on our Peterborough campus, together with online resources.


Assessment

You will be assessed at the end of each module you undertake (on-programme assessments) which will contribute towards the final award of your qualification.


You will also undertake an End Point Assessment (EPA) to complete your apprenticeship.


The EPA for this apprenticeship is integrated into the final on-programme assessments. Therefore, on successful completion of your degree, you will also complete the apprenticeship.

Accredited by TechSkills

Tech Industry Gold is the industry accreditation for digital and tech degrees and degree apprenticeships.
