Have your say: MSc Degree Apprenticeship in Digital and Technology Solutions


The Tech Partnership has published the draft standard for the MSc Digital & Technology Solutions Specialist degree apprenticeship, and is asking for input from employers and other interested parties.

Masters apprenticeships help employers tailor the skills of new talent to their most complex and demanding business challenges, offering both new entrants and existing staff the opportunity to study for an MSc degree while working.

The MSc Digital and Technology Solutions Specialist degree apprenticeship is an integrated Masters degree course and apprenticeship, designed for those progressing into level 7 apprenticeships through a range of routes. This will include graduates who have completed a full-time undergraduate degree in an IT or non-IT related field. It will also be suitable for existing staff with the potential for digital leadership positions.

The new standard will be added to the suite of degree apprenticeships from the Tech Partnership, which includes the Digital and Technology Solutions BSc apprenticeship, the Cyber Security BSc apprenticeship, and the Digital User Experience (UX) BSc/BA apprenticeship.   

The aim is to have the new MSc apprenticeship standard ready for employers and universities to start developing programmes by the end of 2017. 

Make sure you have your say on this new standard. Download the draft standard here and provide feedback through the online questionnaire

The closing date is 21 April 2017.
