Degree and Higher Apprenticeships are an opportunity for employers to engage their staff in academically rigorous but job relevant studies.
A degree apprentice will be employed (normally for at least 30 hours per week) whilst studying for a level 6 (degree) or level 7 (postgraduate) qualification. In combination, the learning the apprentice undertakes on the job and through their studies will meet the knowledge, skills and behaviours outlined in the apprenticeship standard for their role, which has been developed with employers.
On successful completion of their apprenticeship, the learner will graduate with their degree and certification of their apprenticeship.
