Higher Apprenticeships

We work with more than 400 local and national employers to deliver the very best work-based learning. Our employer partners tell us what skills and knowledge they require from their apprentices and we incorporate these requirements into our qualifications, creating Higher level and Degree Apprenticeships.

What is a Higher or Degree Apprenticeship?

Our top level Apprenticeship programmes involve students working towards work-based learning qualifications at Level 4 and above with current, up-to-date content relevant to their sector.

How will it benefit you?

  • You will earn a salary whilst you study;
  • Your employer is likely to cover the cost of any fees for you;
  • You will still be paid when attending scheduled taught sessions;
  • It is common that apprentices are offered a permanent job or a
    promotion at the end of their programme.


Higher Apprenticeships may include a HNC, HND or a Foundation Degree, and you could progress to a full Honours Degree with the support of your employer. Our full foundation level and degree programmes are validated by our partner universities.

You may also progress to new job roles, such as management or technical specialists.
