Programmes carrying Tech Industry Gold accreditation meet industry standards for the blend of business, technology, project and professional skills required by graduates to embark on a successful and rewarding career in the sector.

The University’s apprenticeship programme, which includes both specialist and general computing modules, has been recognised for equipping students with skills, knowledge, and competencies to deliver effective IT solutions within Data Analysis, Network Engineering, Software Engineering, and Cyber Security.

Dr Jordan Allison (pictured), Course Leader for the Digital and Technology Solutions Apprenticeship, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled that the programme has been recognised with Tech Industry Gold accreditation from TechSkills.

“We collaborated with our partners in the industry to design a programme that looked to ensure apprentices were ready to make a positive contribution to the work of their employers from day one of the apprenticeship.

“We hope the Tech Industry Gold accreditation will further enhance the confidence and trust that employers show in the programme, to deliver apprentices who are an asset to their business.”
