Fully funded Software Development / Cyber Security Apprenticeships at The Open University Scotland

Posted: 21st June 2017

Funding is available for the full 4 years of the undergraduate Software Development/Cyber Security Apprenticeship and for 1 year of a postgraduate apprenticeship.

Graduate Level Apprenticeships (GLAs) are work-based learning programmes that lead to degree level qualifications. GLAs allow an individual to work and gain a degree at the same time.

The Open University in Scotland are currently working on a funding bid from Skills Development Scotland to provide a number of places for each of the above GLA programmes.

A deadline of Friday 23rd of June has been set for Scottish businesses to submit letters of interest.

If this is something  a member you as a Scottish business may be interested in, please could you email Katharine on to request a letter template. At this point, you are not committing to anything , we are just seeking letters of support and a guide to potential numbers, to support our bid proposal.
