By gaining hands-on experience applying in-demand technical skills, apprentices transform from software enthusiasts into junior software engineers, able to design, develop, test, and deploy full-stack applications.
Over 15 months, Multiverse equips apprentices with the foundational technical and durable skills they’ll need to be successful in agile environments, aligned with the technologies and frameworks most relevant to their role. Our program takes the best aspects of Computer Science degrees (theoretical knowledge and critical thinking) plus traditional coding bootcamps (practical coding skills) and incorporates them into Multiverse’s unique applied learning model.
By the time they complete the program, apprentices will have built proficiency in full stack development, applied their skills throughout the software development lifecycle, and made key contributions to initiatives at their companies. Apprentices also have the opportunity to explore a specialty area most relevant to their employer’s needs, participate in hackathons, and work on a project portfolio throughout the program.
Most qualifications have a difficulty level. There are 9 qualification levels. The higher the level, the more difficult the qualification is.
Who it's for

12 Week bootcamp
Module 1: Back-End
*Splits based on front-end or back-end pathway; back-end pathway shown below
The first back-end pathway module focuses on server-side development - a critical concept to building enterprise scale applications. This module focuses on Representational State Transfer (REST), a software architecture for the development of web services. Apprentices are introduced to designing and developing APIs, and learn to secure their endpoints using both Basic Authentication and OAuth.
Module 2: Deployment
The deployment module takes output from the first half of the software development life cycle (tested software) and applies the skills needed to package and deploy that software into different environments. It strikes a balance between understanding the theories and methodologies of software deployment and building the set of technical skills needed to actually design and implement a deployment and maintenance strategy.
Module 3: Front-End
In the front-end module, apprentices translate a real-world business problem into relevant user stories, incorporating additional requirements on accessibility and usability. Apprentices then design an interface using prototyping tools, build out the UI in a front-end framework, and apply end-to-end testing to ensure the requirements have been met.
Module 4: Deep Dive Electives (one of the following)
Electives allow apprentices to deepen expertise in their given role through a personalised learning path and project. Apprentices will work with their manager and coach to choose an appropriate elective project that may be a continuation of their current role or provide them with exposure to a potential future engineering pathway. Topics will vary based on employer needs and apprentice interests, but may include a project relevant to front-end, back-end, mobile, cybersecurity, or data engineering.
