Take Your In-House Skills To A New Level
Don't just focus on attracting new talent: boost the skills of existing employees with a degree apprenticeship.
Apprenticeship learning is a unique mix of academic learning, applied in the workplace. Our degree apprenticeships offer current employees the opportunities to gain new qualifications, increasing their knowledge and theoretical understanding of their role and wider industry practices.
Degree apprenticeships were developed between the Government, employers and universities, so you’ll learn skills that will be in high demand and industry-relevant. We welcome learners from diverse learning background, 18 years or over. Whether you have just finished school, or are already building your career or wish to make a career change, degree apprenticeships can offer the opportunity to earn whilst you learn with the employer, supported by Government covering the cost.
Degree apprenticeships range between 1 and 5 years to complete, depending on the course you take. You'll typically attend university by day-release or block-release. Taught provision varies depending on the course, but attendance for the equivalent of 30 weeks every year is a simple way to illustrate out approach. On the weeks you don't go to university, you'll still spend 20% of your time learning and developing on the job.
Upskill your team and invest in your future.

What Our Apprentices say
My primary motivation for undertaking my apprenticeship was to enhance my knowledge and skills in prehospital emergency medicine, which would ultimately benefit my patients. Prior to the apprenticeship, my colleagues and I, who were of the same skill grade (Emergency Medical Technician), would have to request Paramedic assistance to provide higher levels of care.

Go for it! Doing the job is really how you learn, working with experienced people who can teach you but the extra knowledge you get from the university modules, alongside the on the job learning through the apprenticeship, really gives you a much broader understanding of the role and the sector as a whole. It’s hard work but really worth it for the knowledge and experience you gain.
I would highly recommend the route of an apprenticeship to others, the combination of knowledge and experience gained through the programme provides a better overall education than traditional university degrees. It also offers a great opportunity to save for the future without incurring any student debt, which is a huge advantage.

What Our Business Partners Think
The employers we partner with have been able to bring new skills into their business as well as train existing team members through a partner apprenticeship programme with us.
Hillcroft Care, Cumbria
University of Cumbria have been responsive and have worked as a true partner to enable employers to maintain continuity of high-quality education throughout what has been a very difficult and stressful time for a group of front line emergency response employers, and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to other employers.
Salisbury NHS Framework
We are learning new ideas from our apprentice as well as having him here to oversee projects out of season. Both the student and the business are benefitting from some good business advice and skills.
