Higher Apprenticeships can help you grow by developing a motivated, skilled, qualified and professional workforce.
Tomorrow’s growth for UK plc will mean reshaping the economy around high-value and high-skill activities. This means that employment now and in the future requires more highly skilled people.
Higher Apprenticeships are helping to meet this need. They are developed by employers for employers and help businesses grow the leaders of the future.
A Higher Apprenticeship incorporates a work-based learning programme and leads to a nationally recognised qualification at Level 4 and above:
- a Level 4 and 5 is equivalent to a higher education certificate, higher education diploma or a foundation degree
- a Level 6 is equivalent to a bachelor degree
- a Level 7 is equivalent to a master’s degree
They offer a new work-based route into professions which have traditionally been the preserve of graduates.
Over 40 different subjects are currently covered, ranging from commercial airline piloting to legal services, representing hundreds of job roles.
