Course Description

This Applied Software Engineering Degree Apprenticeship provides an alternative route to traditional higher education – combining work with college and university study. This course is designed to allow those who are currently working in the Software and ICT sectors to enhance their skills, knowledge and competence and gain a degree, while remaining in full-time employment.

This qualification encompasses a wide range of skills necessary for success in the IT sector. Indicative aspects develop from the computing foundations to programming with Python, C# and web-based enterprise Java, creating websites using HTML5/CSS and User Experience (UX) and HCI, development of mobile phone apps, formal software engineering methods, security and, also in the final year the apprentices will undertake projects linked to their workplace. Additionally, the learners will also be able to consider and investigate new technology that is constantly being introduced, how it can be used and the ethical considerations.

The course is run through a combination of day-release study at Coleg Llandrillo and Bangor University and structured work-based learning. You will develop competencies to a sufficient level to register for the ICT Technician qualification from the IET (ICTTech).

The course is fully funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales. To apply for this course you or your employer must contact us directly.

Entry Criteria

  • Students need to be in either full or part-time employment (minimum 16 hours a week) in the IT industry.
  • All applicants will be considered on a case by case basis and will be expected to attend an informal interview.

If your qualifications do not meet the entry requirements listed above, we would still encourage you to apply for the course you're interested in, as many of our courses will consider learners based on their previous work and skills experience rather than their qualifications.


The course is delivered through interactive lectures, tutorials and workshops. There will also be presentations by guest speakers. Learning is practical and informal.


You’ll be assessed through a variety of methods such as practical and theoretical assignments, reports, oral presentations, project work, portfolios and team-based assignments.


Completion of the programme can lead to a range of options in employment and education.
