University launches new apprenticeship programmes to meet modern business needs
12th January 2021
The University of Gloucestershire is launching four new apprenticeship programmes to meet a range of modern business needs. Businesses can join an online event on Tuesday 19 January to hear what’s on offer. New apprentices will begin in April.
Higher and degree apprenticeships are a cost-effective way for businesses to upskill their workforce. They are a powerful alternative to traditional university study. Whilst apprentices benefit from increased skills and enhanced employability, employers gain from greater productivity and improved competitiveness.
Digital Technology Solutions Professionals (DTSP) support internal and external customers across a range of areas, including software development, business and systems analysis, cyber security, data analysis and network infrastructure. They bring to their organisation skills that are integral to 21st century business operations.
The University of Gloucestershire is launching a new DTSP degree apprenticeship programme, enabling learners to develop core skills before they specialise in one of three pathways: Software Engineer, Network Engineer or Data Analyst. The University is also launching a new degree apprenticeship in Data Science. Apprentices will learn how to source, access and manipulate data, and use the insights they have gathered to inform and achieve organisational goals.
