Higher and degree apprenticeships

Boost the skills of your workforce and enhance your productivity with our higher and degree apprenticeships.

Upskill your workforce

Higher and degree apprenticeships are a great and cost-effective way of upskilling your workforce. They are an alternative to traditional university study, giving your employees the opportunity to obtain a higher qualification and learn professional skills.

While apprentices benefit from increased skills and enhanced employability, employers gain from greater productivity and improved competitiveness.

We offer a range of apprenticeships at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. What’s more, they can be tailored to meet your business needs.

We’re already delivering apprenticeships for leading employers including Superdry, Clarkson Evans, St James’s Place Wealth Management and the NHS.

If your business is registered in England and has a pay bill of less than £3 million each year, you’re only required to pay 5% towards the cost of an apprenticeship, with the government paying the remaining 95%.

If your business is registered in England and has a pay bill of more than £3 million each year, apprenticeship costs will be funded by the apprenticeship levy.
