Degree apprenticeships

For employees

Combine work with study for a higher education qualification, developing your career and earning potential, with no loans, no debts and no age limit.

  • Earn while you learn with no need for a student loan - your fees are paid by the government and your employer
  • Achieve a nationally recognised qualification and gain professional accreditation or membership
  • Develop your career and increase your earning potential
  • Make connections with people in industry to help achieve your future career goals


We work closely with employers to provide educational and training solutions that meet employer requirements. We offer a range of degree apprenticeships based on available approved national standards and we are adding more to the list as new national standards become available.
