Information for Apprentices

They combine working with studying part-time at a university. You are employed throughout the programme, and spend part of your time at university and the rest with your employer. Put simply a Degree Apprenticeship is a job with education.

Learn what the benefits are for apprentices

Most of your time is spent at work – taking on live projects, getting hands on with real challenges and working alongside industry experts. The remaining time, at least 20%, you will be studying for a recognised qualification, at a university or college.

We have worked with leading employers to develop industry-relevant programmes and have delivered these to over 500 students studying against an undergraduate Degree Apprenticeship standard.

The programmes we have developed with these companies offer you high-quality education and ensure that you get the right knowledge and skills to apply directly to your job. We can offer you innovative thinking, expert insights and engaging learning experiences.

By the end of your apprenticeship you will have a degree and should have gained the right skills, knowledge and behaviours that employers want.

To undertake a Degree Apprenticeship you will need to be employed by a company happy to support you on this programme. This means that you will need to make an application to one of the organisations who are advertising vacancies or if you are already employed, your company may be able to offer you an appropriate Degree Apprenticeship.
