Modern Apprenticeships might be right for you if you prefer to learn from hands-on experience, and would prefer part time rather than full time study. Being able to earn while you learn is another plus point.
The Modern Apprenticeship in Digital Technology: Software Development is available at SCQF Level 8 (this is a technical level apprenticeship).
This apprenticeship has been designed for use to support digital technology roles in software development both within digital organisations and also across different sectors such as construction, engineering, utilities, infrastructure, finance and a variety of public bodies.
Anyone living in Scotland who is over school leaving age can apply. Sometimes employers set an upper age limit, as the Scottish Government doesn’t always fund training for those aged over 24.
You would check this with individual employers.
You will achieve the relevant Scottish Vocational Qualification (SVQ), Diploma or other competency based qualification. In addition, you work towards core skills and complete industry specific training.
