The University of Gloucestershire is launching four new apprenticeships to help meet the needs of modern businesses.

It will offer a new digital technology solutions professionals course, where apprentices can learn skills including cyber security and software development, with the opportunity to specialise in software engineering, network engineering or data analysis.
