Get all the skills you need to become a Software Development professional in our immersive work-study programme

Have you been considering a career change? Or maybe you want to break into the tech industry but aren't sure how? 

Apply for our Software Developer Apprenticeship and join a comprehensive program that provides you with the skills and training you need to become a Software Development professional.


Applications for the Autumn 2021 intake are now closed.

How does it work?

As part of our paid Software Developer Apprenticeship, you'll join our team at Deloitte and be assigned a coach, who will work with you throughout your 24-month apprenticeship. The program can include 2-3 work placement rotations and you will be supported day-to-day by a team leader for each of them.

Apprentices start in Autumn 2021 with a six-month block of offsite training in collaboration with our educational partner, Fastrack into Information Technology (FIT) who are the National Coordinating Provider
for Tech Apprenticeships. The programme will be delivered by Dublin and Dun Laoghaire Education and Training Board (DDLETB) at their Tallaght Training Centre location.    

This work-study model allows you to learn the basics of technology consulting by following the ICT Associate Professional Software Developer track, and sets you up for success for your onsite time at Deloitte. With experience, you could become a senior developer with responsibility for systems analysis, design and development, IT architecture, business systems analysis and testing.
