From Zero to Hero

Our Level 3 Developer Apprenticeship is targeted at anyone looking to start out on a career in software development. An award winning mix of on-the-job learning and classroom training that has been successfully delivered since 2013, means that you will build valuable experience, earn a decent living and gain vital qualifications.

The Job

Our Level 3 Developer Apprentices get involved in a wide variety of work from building websites through to supporting our customers to exploit the tools that we build.

We've been delivering Level 3 Apprenticeships for years, so we know how to get the most out of the talented people that walk through the door. We provide great induction and support during your initial weeks to get you started, so that you can get hands on and customer facing as soon as you and we have confidence in you being able to make a difference to our customers.

There's no such thing as a typical day, but it's not unusual for an early stage Apprentice to be undertaking supporting and maintenance of our existing sites. Mid-year Apprentices will often be planning and undertaking testing of complex web or mobile applications, or delivering small modules of bigger projects. Near-qualified Apprentices will often be using their knowledge, skills and experience to be developing considerable parts of complex projects.

The Learning

Apprenticeships are all about a blended mix of on-the-job and classroom-based learning. We partner with QA Learning for our Level 3 Apprenticeship, and you'll benefit from 8 weeks worth of classroom training covering subjects including:

  • C# Fundamentals
  • Object Orientation
  • Introduction to SQL
  • Data modelling
  • Web development using ASP.NET MVC

The Rewards

Apprentices benefit in so many ways from the investment they make in their career:

  • Advanced Apprenticeship Software Development Technician Level 3 (equivalent to A-level educational level)
  • Industry recognised qualifications:
    • Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) Software Development Fundamentals (C# track)
    • Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 8 Programmer (Java track)
  • Salary: £10,000 per annum
  • 28 days holiday

The Future

Our Level 3 Developer Apprenticeship is an investment in the future. It's the beginning of a career in Software Engineering recognised by industry employers as a reliable first step.

The next step in our technical career path is a Degree Apprenticeship which could see you deepen your technical or management skills, gaining a BSc (Honours) Degree in Digital and Technology Solutions or BA (Hons) in Management Practice from the Open University with £0 student debt. All while continuing in a full time job at Carbon Six Digital.
