Jump start your career as a programmer with a software development apprenticeship at Mayden Academy.

Our apprenticeships are offered in partnership with Bath College, and accredited by the British Computing Society (BCS).


Why do an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are open to people of all ages, and offer some great benefits.

  • Earn a salary while you study
  • Go straight from study into work – your job is guaranteed before you start the course
  • Your employer pays the course fee
  • Achieve a recognised level 4 qualification
  • Receive the same high quality Full Stack Track training as other students


How does it work?

The software developer apprenticeship takes 18 months. Your apprenticeship begins with four months of training (our core Full Stack Track course), then 12-14 months of work placement with an employer.

Applicants must be aged 18 or over, a UK citizen, and cannot have a degree in a related field (eg Computer Science).

Over the course of your apprenticeship you’ll work with Bath College to create a portfolio of work to submit to BCS for assessment.

In the final two months, BCS will interview your manager to assess your performance, and will interview you to assess your skills.

You will then come back to Mayden Academy for one week to complete a final project. Bath College will submit your portfolio and final project to BCS for assessment, and BCS will award the qualification.

After you have completed your apprenticeship, your employer can offer you a permanent contract, or you can choose to take a position elsewhere.


How to apply

It’s very easy to apply for a software development apprenticeship with Mayden Academy.

Simply apply to the Full Stack Track in the usual way and let us know that you’re interested in an apprenticeship. After the assessment we’ll link you with employers for interview.

Alternatively, if you already work for an employer you’d like to do an apprenticeship with, put in your application and tell them to come and have a chat with us.
