Skills an apprentice will learn
  • complying with statutory, quality, organisational, environmental and health and safety regulations, apprentices will seek opportunities to show compliance with appropriate standards
  • reading and interpreting Software engineering data, apprentices will demonstrate an understanding of code, design and requirements documentation
  • applying configuration management and software build processes, apprentices will gain experience of the methods & tools used to control the change and modification of software-related products
  • developing and applying Algorithms, including specification, design and implementation, apprentices will construct algorithms required to implement required functionality in software
  • applying appropriate Engineering Operations and Toolsets, apprentices will use the standard methods adopted for software production and the toolsets deployed to support efficient development
  • applying analytical methods (engineering mathematics), apprentices will use mathematics and associated toolsets to reason about properties of software such as safety or performance
  • applying Systems Engineering principles, apprentices will learn the criteria for making architectural decisions in order to achieve an optimal solution over potentially conflicting system objectives
  • using “Modelling & Simulation” software, apprentices will learn how to develop software more quickly and reliably utilising “Modelling” toolsets
  • applying business improvement techniques ensuring optimisation of processes, resources and budget, apprentices will use systematic methods to identify and eliminate waste and inefficiencies in their software production activities
