Develop specialist expertise and high-level skills while keeping your business up-to-date with industry knowledge.
As one of the UK's lead providers of degree apprenticeships, approved by the Education and Skills Funding Agency, we work with organisations across all sectors, giving you real input into your sector's skills provision.
We have a proven track record of delivering work-related education, industry and business partnerships and learn-while-you-earn programmes. We've worked with big brands and organisations for decades and developed a modern apprentice partnership with the North East Chamber of Commerce.
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.

The initiative will also offer support to smaller companies taking on apprentices aged 19-24, often for the first time.
This support is designed to assist employers who are committed to creating a new apprenticeship or progressing an existing apprentice onto a higher level of apprenticeship. Apprentices must start their learning before 31 July 2018. The Apprenticeship training must be provided by a training provider approved by the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA).Find out more
Apprenticeship levy-paying employers (those with pay bills over £3m) pay for apprenticeship training from their online levy accounts via the government's apprenticeship service. They will also receive a 10% government top-up to their online accounts.
Non-levy payers pay only 10% of the cost of apprenticeship training, with the remaining 90% being paid by the government.
