How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Apprenticeships

I started out as any other student doing A-levels, being force-fed the idea that to have any semblance of success in life I have to be looking at universities, which I partly believed. After passing my A-levels and planning to take a gap-year to mull over going to University, worrying about the £40,000+ debt once I finish, then the job hunt, where you are competing with hundreds (if not thousands) of starry-eyed graduates that have the same degree. What I quickly learned about the IT industry, however, is that a degree doesn't tell a employer how good you are at writing code, because in the industry, experience takes precedence.

What is our Degree Apprenticeship all about?

This short video introduces two of our apprentices who are currently also studying for a degree in Technology.  They talk about what they are learning, the challenges they face, their future plans, what they enjoy and what they are currently working on. If you are currently considering a Degree Apprenticeship we hope this may prove helpful.
