I read on another forum that many Computer Science degree apprenticeships are listed as "Digital & Technology" apprenticeships, if this is true I've missed out on so many apprenticeship opportunities

More than likely, considering it relates to technology?

Yes, 'Digital and Technology Solutions' is a lot like a Computing/CompSci degree - There's a good description here, including the jobs/pathways you can take with it: https://www.instituteforapprenticesh...grated-degree/

Don't worry if you happen to have missed some opening windows, these schemes roll around every year anyway so they're not a "one off" type thing - nearly all the companies involved will reopen recruitment again at some point, so you really haven't missed out on anything, the opportunities will come back for the next intake

There'll be a lot more which open up in the new year - December is always a very quiet time for recruitment, so you might need to wait a few more weeks before it all starts to pick up again.

Ok, thanks a lot for the detailed reply. I've found a few Digital and Technology apprenticeships.
Another question, will I need to write a cover letter along with my CV when I'm applying to one of these degree apprenticeships?

Some will ask for it, most won't. Either way, it's a nice addition to your CV as it shows that you care about the application (even if you actually might not).

Normally yes, in most cases you'd be applying directly to the employer so treat it in exactly the same way that you'd apply for any other job.

You have to go online and find companies that offer degree apprenticeships. For example, EY, KPMG and PWC.

The digital and technology solution apprenticeship is the scheme I am on. I am a 3rd year DTS apprentice at the university of Exeter.
It’s an IT engineering course basically. It’s been around now for about 5 year, so still quite a new course.

The modules to me are a mixture or computer science and business.
There’s several specialisms and they’re quite broad, but all tie back into IT.

A number of employers across the UK offer the scheme, you can find vacancies through the employers vacancy pages or through the national apprenticeships website.

IMHO, it’s a fantastic choice - as someone who did a ‘normal’ uni course, then switched to the apprenticeship, personally I think this is far better.
