Graduate Level Apprenticeships

Graduate Level Apprenticeships in IT at the University of Dundee

Supporting employers to develop the skills of their workforce

Computing@Dundee offers Graduate Level Apprenticeships in IT in partnership with local employers. Of our two programmes, IT Software Development delivers more technical skills whereas IT Management for Business balances technical skills with business and project management specialisms. We are already working with businesses and local authorities in Tayside to deliver these courses and are always open to discussing new partnerships with new employers.

The combination of work-based learning and high quality education allows both employers and students to benefit in a number of ways:

  • Graduate Level Apprenticeships are an Honours degree which uses work-based learning
  • GLAs provide a way for people to study for a degree who are currently in employment, or who want to work in a relevant role gaining the right experience while studying
  • Employees can broaden their knowledge, learn new skills and secure industry accreditation, which will them progress as professionals and contribute to the business they are employed by
  • By investing in their staff through the apprenticeships, employers can develop their workforce and support staff to develop their skills to industry and professional standards, in turn supporting the business and developing new solutions to date to day challenges
  • Because the GLA is designed around the needs of industry, employers will have confidence that what their staff are learning at college or university will directly contribute to the success of the business

Businesses can either recommend an existing employee to undertake a GLA or hire a new member of staff. Current employees could be IT professionals who have no formal IT education and are keen to progress, or non-technical employees moving into IT or software engineering
