Higher and Degree Apprenticeships

London banner

We provide uniquely tailored solutions for employers to reach their business goals and gain the maximum value from investing in higher and degree apprenticeships.

Transform your business performance and build your A-Team with a new government initiative which brings together the best of higher education and vocational training. Higher and degree apprenticeships are a cost effective solution for all employers to acquire the latest higher-level industry skills and knowledge. The programmes integrate academic study with practical application in the workplace and can lead to a Higher Education certificate, diploma or degree and professional accreditation or membership.

Higher and degree apprenticeships at a glance

  • Higher and degree apprenticeships are suitable for both new and existing staff
  • Apprentices are employees and spend the majority of their time in the workplace, supported by dedicated study time with the University
  • The programmes can be tailored to meet the needs of employers
  • Larger organisations can use their apprenticeship levy and government top-up to pay for tuition and professional fees of higher and degree apprenticeships
  • For smaller employers, the government pays 90%, with the remainder co-invested by the business
