Upskill your developers using funds from the apprenticeship levy

During the coronavirus outbreak we're working remotely, but we're open as normal. We can still help you grow your tech teams.

What is the DevAccelerator?

Upskill your software developers with a 13-month industry-led professional training programme, paid for with apprenticeship levy funding, co-investment or levy-transfer.

We’ve combined our experience in designing and delivering corporate training with an apprenticeship standard, providing a better way to fast-track your developers to mid and senior level so that you can build better tech.

A New Approach

Unleash your developers' productivity with a range of industry-driven structured learning and tech-agnostic masterclasses on topics like cloud operations, testing and more. You can choose a language-specific deep-dive course as part of the programme for your developers, too.

A Level 4 Qualification

When you invest in your developers, they become invested in you. Not to mention they deliver far more value back to your business, faster. Our programmes combine instructor-led workshops, e-learning, mentoring and practical project-based learning to help your tech team write better code, no matter your industry.

Leverage the levy

This programme can be fully paid for using your apprenticeship levy pot. No levy? You don’t need to pay into the apprenticeship levy to use it. Funding is available for organisations of any size via co-investment or levy transfer. We just need a few details about your organisation, and we’ll do the rest.

About the programme

The exact structure of the 13-month DevAccelerator programme varies depending on the cohort. Here is how a typical programme could look.


You can enrol:
> People who are about to graduate from our coding bootcamps
> Northcoders graduates and junior developers from your team
> Enrol your existing employees (who can’t code yet) on the DevPathway and then the DevAccelerator


Your developers will take part in a three extended Masterclasses:
> 1 Language Masterclass
> 2 Northcoders DevLabs Masterclasses
all led by our subject matter experts.

We have GO, TypeScript and C# Language Masterclasses available on upcoming courses. You can choose from Masterclasses such as Cloud Ops, DevOps, Mobile App Development and Applied Testing for your DevLabs courses.

throughout the DevAccelerator, each engineer will receive support in your language and stack from their Northcoders mentor, monthly support meetings and a progress review.

Certifications and Assessments

Usually, apprentices will complete:
Recognised Professional Certification – your developers will work towards a certification of your choice, relevant to your stack, such as AWS, Azure and Oracle
Human Skills – being a developer involves more than just the tech. Bolster your team's competitive edge by enhancing their soft skills with training delivered by our expert partners.
Knowledge Module Assessment - Your developers will demonstrate what they have learned during our DevLabs courses.
End-Point Assessment - Once your developers have passed all of the knowledge modules, they will complete their End-Point Assessment. This will consolidate their knowledge and demonstrate what they have learned to complete their Level 4 Software Development Apprenticeship.

Your developers will be awarded a certificate after their End-Point Assessment has been reviewed. You will be rewarded with a team of confident, self-sufficient software developers with the right mindset to continue thriving.
