Software Engineering

By building their skills across the entire software development lifecycle, apprentices become confident junior engineers, able to design, develop and secure accessible, full-stack applications.


Over 15-18 months, apprentices develop into well-rounded software engineers. As well as coding, they build the broader skills of a developer, including problem solving, a second language, and communicating in a team.

The journey kicks off with a five-week bootcamp – an applied course in full-stack development led by industry-expert coaches. In its final week, apprentices work in teams to develop and showcase their own full-stack applications.

Then it’s into the workplace, with apprentices ready to begin refining and building on their new skills. The learning and growth never stops, with four additional modules focusing on core topics. Apprentices will work on a portfolio throughout the programme. Once complete, apprentices will pour all their new skills and knowledge into a final, work-based project

I always wanted to work in tech but while studying in Uganda I had limited access to technology. As soon as I returned to the UK, I dived into tech. Multiverse gave me access to potential employers and ensured I had the right tools to succeed.
