The BSc (Hons) Digital & Technology Solutions and MSc Digital and Technology Specialist Degree Apprenticeships involve the delivery of a number of computing streams which incorporate Software Engineering, Computer Networking, Cyber Security, Big Data, Analytics and Maths, and broader areas of Computer Science.

Our programmes use a mixture of distance and face-to-face teaching and facilitation across the country using experiential and spiral methods to develop theories-in-action in a work-based learning approach that is both scholarly and professional.

Our learners come from a wide variety of backgrounds and work for an equally wide variety of companies including some of the biggest technology companies in Europe.

Your focus: 

Supporting the day to day running of the degree apprenticeships programmes. 

As important is role-modelling your interest in inquiry and focussing into organisations to promote the professional development of our learners (their employees).  

We work as a geographically dispersed but close-knit team, sharing teaching experiences and new ideas. We challenge each other and work determinedly and efficiently, to reach ever improving teaching and learning standards and outcomes.
