This programme includes a six week boot camp followed by one day per week at University. The purpose of the boot camp is to put in place a fundamental set of core skills and knowledge to help you to contribute to a working environment and to transition level 3 students to the requirements of higher education.
The course supports you by combining learning opportunities within the workplace and the learning environment of the University. This approach allows you to meet the higher learning and skills required for your own success and those of employers, now and in the future.
A teaching style is adopted that enables sharing and creation of knowledge and working with others to identify solutions to organisational problems. The assessments enable this knowledge and learning to be applied directly within your workplace.
A variety of assessment methods are used. Your assessments are designed to build on the work you undertake in class. An in-course assessment often consists of a practical exercise and an associated report helping you to develop both technical and business skills.
This higher degree apprenticeship is for you if you want to develop your career across a range of sectors and in a variety of roles at a manager or senior management level.
Your employer sets the general internal selection criteria but you also need to meet the entry requirements specified by the University. You will typically be working as part of a larger collaborative team in which you will have responsibility for significant elements of the overall project.
A typical student would have 112 tariff points from at least two A levels (or equivalent), together with mathematics and English at GCSE, grade C or above (or equivalent). However, the University would also welcome applications from mature students without conventional entry requirements, and can take into account alternative qualifications and experience.
