Degree and higher apprenticeships

Higher and degree apprenticeships are one of the best opportunities for you to build workforce talent and maximise the performance of your business.

Through a combined approach of classroom study and on the job training, we can offer your team a business focused training package to suit your needs. The flexible delivery of our apprenticeships means you aren’t limited to one entry point in September and can adopt a blended learning approach, that combines work-based learning with online learning. Minimising the time spent away from your business!

So whether you're an employer looking to build the skills and qualifications of your team, or looking to retain and attract workforce talent with attractive training opportunities - we'll guide you through your options to find the perfect approach for you.

What are degree and higher apprenticeship?

Degree and higher degree apprenticeships combine work with study and may include a work-based, academic or combined qualification or a professional qualification relevant to the industry or role that you work in. Higher apprenticeships are Levels 4 and 5 and are equivalent to a Higher Education Certificate/Diploma or a Foundation Degree. Degree apprenticeships are a Level 6 qualification that provides an opportunity to gain a full bachelor’s degree.

We currently offer higher apprenticeships in Accountancy; Management; Business Admin; Care Leadership and Management whilst also offering degree apprenticeships in Business Management, Laboratory Science and Health.
