Higher Level Apprenticeships
If you are employed for over 30 hours a week and keen to progress within your current role, you could benefit from being taught by our sector experts and network with like-minded people to share best practice. Not only will you gain certification for what you ‘know’, but also what you ‘do’ through studying with us for a higher apprenticeship.
Like intermediate and advanced apprenticeships, higher apprenticeships combine on the job training while studying towards a high level qualification. Higher level apprenticeships are available at a range of levels from the equivalent of a foundation degree to a bachelor’s degree and soon at master’s degree level in some sectors.
To start a higher apprenticeship you need to have entry qualifications typically at Level 3 such as A Levels, Level 3 Diploma, NVQ Level 3 or an advanced Apprenticeship.
Higher apprenticeships allow you to earn while you learn at the highest level and progress into higher skilled occupations.
You will benefit from:
- The potential to achieve graduate and post graduate qualifications whilst learning and earning
- The chance to gain professional accreditation and membership
- No debt via student loans as the government and your employer fund the training
- New opportunities for career progression
- A clear pathway to achieving your ambitions in the work place, plus higher earning capacity, recognition and status
- Recent reports estimate that completing a Level 4 higher apprenticeship could result in increased lifetime earnings of around £150,000.
