UK Apprenticeship Programme
Our UK apprentices are fully immersed in the Critical Software way of life, experiencing life like a real employee. They work closely with our engineering teams on projects chosen to broaden their knowledge and fast-track their progression, gaining real experience and insight into what it takes to be one of our experts.

The apprentices we recruit usually have an interest in IT, software or engineering, though they are unlikely to possess any professional experience. They will typically undertake formal education at a college, generally leading to level 3 and level 4 ICT qualifications.

Apprenticeships generally last for two to three years. After this point, commensurate with university graduates, apprentices will have reached a position equivalent to Junior Software Engineer.

UK Internships
We offer internships lasting one year for young people with relevant experience who wish to gain first-hand experience of a role within a first-class software engineering company. Our interns get to work with real engineers on real projects relating to their field of study.

Our internship programmes look to provide individuals with some of the practical experience needed to help them progress into a professional role by supporting their development and growth.
