Degree Apprenticeships

Revolutionising the way young people get started on a tech career


Degree apprenticeships help employers tailor graduate-level candidates to their business needs through on-the-job and academic training. They also give young people opportunities to study for an Honours degree while they work. Degree apprenticeships are a government-backed collaboration between Tech Partnership employers and higher education institutions.

Success Stories

"Degree apprentices learn the digital skills that are customised to our business needs; so at the end of their degree, not only do they have the skills we need, but they also understand our business operations."

Damian Jacobs, Emerging Talent Manager, Lloyds Banking Group

"Tech Partnership accreditation is very important to HMRC. We would be very reluctant to sign up our young people to a degree apprenticeship programme if it was not well recognised for its high standards among a very wide employer group."

Joanne Singer, HR Policy Lead, HMRC

"Students know that on a Gold standard degree apprenticeship, they are on a par with other graduates."

Victoria Ward, Head of Central Services, Fujitsu
