What is a degree apprenticeship?
A degree apprenticeship combines degree level education with on the job training helping you to develop your management expertise while you work. This alternative university route is designed in collaboration with industry to create new talent solutions that meet the needs of both learners and employers with tuition fees covered by your employer and/or government funding.
This will involve developing the professional knowledge, skills and behaviours to care for people across the lifespan (pre-conception to end of life), with diverse needs
(physical, mental health and learning disabilities) in a range of settings (home, community and inpatient settings). As an apprentice you will be working in professional employment whilst also learning in the workplace utilising a structured delivery pattern, supported by both the university/employer.
By the end of programme, you will be familiar with the concept of reflective practice, lifelong learning, and will have a comprehensive portfolio. You will have a repertoire of clinical skills which you will be able to transfer and adapt appropriately enabling you to work in a variety of healthcare settings. On completion of the programme you will have completed a FdSc Nursing Associate, which is registerable with the NMC. Following this you will undertake your end point assessment to complete your apprenticeship. Completion of this programme will allow you to top up to BSc practice development or APL up to a maximum 50% registered nurse programme in any of the 4 fields of nursing, (adult, mental health, learning disability or child).
