What is a Higher Level Apprenticeship?

Higher level apprenticeships allow you to combine on the job training and practical work experience, while studying towards a high level qualification.

They are available at Level 4 through to and including Level 7, from the equivalent of a foundation degree to a bachelor’s degree, and at master’s degree level in some occupations.
