Great news! We’ve teamed up with the Tech Partnership, a network of employers who are working to create skills for the UK’s digital economy. Their ambition is to create enough skills for a million people to have tech jobs by 2025. Now, we’re working together to get you guys clued up on the benefits of digital apprenticeships and the huge range of digital careers you could have if you chose to do an apprenticeship.

Tech can sometimes seem like a confusing industry. With a load of smart-sounding job titles out there, it’s hard to know what different roles really mean. So we decided to investigate what an apprentice Software Developer actually does.

Software developers are the creative minds behind computer programs. Some develop the applications that allow people to do specific tasks and design the computer applications we use every day on our mobiles or on the web, such as websites and games. Others develop the underlying systems that run the devices we use, these could be operating systems for computers and smartphones or systems built specifically for businesses. All Software developers will be involved from start to finish of the whole software development life cycle.
