Tech Industry Gold accreditation

Leading employers and Higher Education Institutions (universities and collaborations of private training providers or colleges with universities) have worked with TechSkills to develop a range of digital degree apprenticeships. These are recognised as accredited by employers as Tech Industry Gold, which confirms they meet industry standards for quality, content and delivery.

The Tech Industry Gold degree apprenticeships are offered at BSc and MSc levels. At BSc level, there are currently 3 programmes – Digital & Technology Solutions, Cyber Security, and User Experience (UX). The MSc degree apprenticeship is available for Digital & Technology Solutions with a range of specialisms.

As a degree apprentice on the programme, you’ll be apprenticed to an employer and will study for a BSc or MSc degree at an associated university. To apply successfully, you’ll have to satisfy both the employer’s and the associated university’s recruitment and entry requirements. These will usually be explained on the employer’s recruitment web pages.
