Learning digital skills with Grow Digital Cornwall

Frequently Asked questions for Apprentices

Why choose a digital apprenticeship?

A digital apprenticeship will give you relevant, work-based skills for a wide range of businesses. The digital marketer apprenticeship could give you the in-demand skills that most businesses need to survive the modern workplace, or the software developer apprenticeship could set you up to develop new software at an exciting tech company.
A digital apprenticeship is a way to earn while you learn, avoid student debt and receive thousands of pounds worth of training whilst you stay up to date with the real working world.

Can I join an apprenticeship for the job I already do?

You can become an apprentice at any time in your career, and it can be a great way to add valuable skills to the role that you already do.

Am I too old or young to do an apprenticeship?

So long as you are older than the age of 16, there is no age restriction for apprenticeships. You can become an apprentice right after school or at any other time in your career, and it can even be a great way to entrench valuable skills into the role that you do now.

If I have a degree, can I do a digital apprenticeship?

Having a degree can impact on your eligibility to do an apprenticeship. If you have only partially completed a degree, or have left a degree before your final assessment, you are likely to still be eligible for an apprenticeship. However, it is best to get in touch with the Digital Peninsula Network apprenticeship team to discuss your eligibility.

What is the software developer apprenticeship?

The software developer apprenticeship is ideal for someone who is interested in a career that includes coding and developing software. If you want to get started in the growing tech and software industry in Cornwall, this is the apprenticeship for you.
