Our Degree apprenticeship are delivered over 3 years (full 48week years) on a day release basis. We have adopted a blended learning approach with lectures, group work and coaching.

The programmes are open to new or existing employees of any age with the appropriate Level 3 qualifications. Our degree apprenticeships qualify for government funding via the apprenticeship levy (larger employers) or the co-investment fund (SMEs receive 90% funding).
