Based in Glasgow with BBC Scotland and Design + Engineering teams, you'll get to work at the heart of our digital product teams at the BBC, all while studying for a degree apprenticeship at Glasgow University.
You will complete both off-the-job and on-the-job training. You'll study for a bachelor's degree (Hons) with tailored modules such as:

Through a series of university taught modules and industrial experience we will prepare you as a new Software Engineer for an internet-fit BBC.
Are you the right candidate?
You will be someone who naturally wants to be a hands-on Software Engineer and will feel comfortable developing over the course of the scheme to work with software languages, software frameworks, cloud computing and associated systems.
We're not looking for you to come as a ready-made Software Engineer– we just want you to have an ambition and determination to succeed.
Throughout the application process we'll be asking for evidence that shows your passion and ability for this technology-based role. You need to be a good communicator and have the ability to develop to be effective in the working environment with technical or non-technical people.
As this is a degree apprenticeship we need strong academic performance. Candidates with Scottish qualifications are required to have a minimum of BBBB including Mathematics and English, all of which must have been achieved in the first sitting. (Desirable AAAA including Mathematics)
Candidates with qualifications from outside Scotland must have a minimum AAB which must include Mathematics, English and a science A-Level.
A minimum GCSE or Standard Grades qualifications in maths and English at A-C or equivalent is also mandated.
You will have interest and confidence to develop your working knowledge and skills in software programming, algorithms and cloud computing.
To be eligible for this scheme, you will need to have the right to work in the UK.
