School Leavers who are talented programmers with A*/A Maths A-Level, are encouraged to apply for a Software Engineer Degree Apprenticeship at 360 Systems, Ellesmere Port, Cheshire.

Applicants know they want a career as a Web App Developer. They are very interested in the theory covered in a Computer Science Degree but want to put theory into practice writing commercial software now.

If you have already built web apps or a website outside of the classroom, a BSc Digital & Technology Degree Apprenticeship should be a serious option for you.

BSc (Hons) Digital and Technology Solutions

Putting the theory you learn in coursework and lectures into practice at 360 Systems allows you to advance rapidly, enhancing career prospects significantly over traditional Computer Science Graduates.
