Regardless of age or prior attainment, anyone can do an apprenticeship provided they’re learning new skills and are employed in England, in a relevant role. Kaplan will support you to assess the job role suitability as part of your application.
To do this apprenticeship employers may specify that candidates must have at least a grade 4/C GCSE (or equivalent) in Maths and English. If apprentices don’t have this level of Maths and English, Kaplan offers free resources and support to make sure they develop their understanding of the subjects and application by the end of their apprenticeship.
Apprentices on this standard must be working in a full-time DevOps environment where they will implement and support software, (such as operating systems, middleware and applications) and supporting components such as databases.
Apprentices typically have one of the following:
- 2 A Levels or International Baccalaureate or any other Level 3 qualification such as a BTEC Extended Diploma
- A Level 3 Apprenticeship
- 12 months of work experience in the last 24 months if they do not have any other Level 3 qualifications
