With demand for highly skilled software developers continuing to increase, the shortage of available talent to fill these roles is putting pressure on the UK technology industry. Red River Software have partnered with the University of Chichester on their Digital and Technology Solutions Professional (Software Engineer) Degree Apprenticeship Programme to bridge that gap, provide practical, hands-on work placements and develop a talent pipeline.

In this short video Red River’s Simon Pringle and James Seden Smith discuss the impact it’s had.
