Graduate Apprenticeship Opportunity

UK IT Graduate Apprenticeships

Graduate Apprenticeship, with ScottishPower and ScottishPower Energy Networks, delivered in partnership with Heriot-Watt and Glasgow Caledonian University.

Do you know an enthusiastic and ambitious recent school leaver, interested in Data Science, IT or Cyber Security?

Our Graduate Apprenticeship programmes deliver this exciting new way to gain a Degree whilst working and earning a salary. They study the same subjects as those completing a traditional full-time undergraduate degree and achieve the equivalent level of qualification over a four-year period. The key difference is they will undertake learning as a mix of classroom and workplace-based training and assessment – whilst engaged in paid employment as a core member of the team.

We provide a full-time employment contract whilst they complete the degree, with the opportunity for a permanent role following graduation. Initially, they will complete 1 day per week classroom learning at university, and 4 days per week workplace learning. The balance of office versus lecture time alters as they progress through the degree.


  • Year 1 – £ 18,500 with salary progression over years 2-4. (subject to performance criteria)
  • 31 paid days’ annual holiday entitlement
  • A workplace mentor who will guide you through a structured training programme
