Since September 2020, CU Group offers a Cloud Computing BSc(Hons) degree program developed with support from Amazon Web Services (AWS), leveraging their platform for teaching and learning and building upon their Cloud Competency Framework (CCF). This paper seeks to share how industry cloud technology stacks can be employed within authentic student learning. This has ensured a scenario led assessment for learning approach as an alternative to a simulated learning environment. CU Group is also an AWS Academy and Educate member, facilitating certification and platform access. This incorporates the experience of an industry leader in direct collaboration with HE to embed cloud skills within existing programs or develop specific curricula to target-fill skill gaps within the cloud landscape. Current students will graduate in August 2022, the first degree level graduates globally for HEIs working within the CCF.
