Level 3 Software Development Technician Apprenticeship

Course Overview

Our Level 3 Software Development Technician Apprenticeship is aimed at those who work as part of a Software Development Team, to build simple software components (whether web, mobile or desktop applications) to be used by other members of the team as part of larger software development projects.

Learn to interpret simple design requirements for discrete components of the project under supervision. The approach will typically include implementing code which other team members have developed to produce the required component.

We offer bespoke learning to each Apprentice, and heavily involve the employer with all curriculum scoping to ensure progress is meaningful. In addition, the curriculum scoping exercise provides an opportunity to review prior learning and completed qualifications, with the aim of personalising Apprenticeships to support and enhance your business, and therefore your Apprentices’ progress and progression.

Our thorough IAG (Information, Advice and Guidance) ensures that each Apprentice understands the context of their learning, the assessment methodology and that their future career progression is carefully mapped into their journey by their Trainer.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS:

Individual employers may set any entry requirements which may include:

  • It is desirable that candidates would have achieved a level 2 in Maths and English (equivalent to GCSE Grade C or above) prior to commencing their Apprenticeship training. Those Apprentices who are yet to achieve a level 2 in English and Maths will have the opportunity to complete these qualifications during their Apprenticeship. However, a level 2 must be achieved in these areas before they qualify for entry to their End Point Assessment (EPA).
