What are higher and degree apprenticeships?

Higher and degree apprenticeships are the best combination of on the job training and higher level study available.  These programmes allow you to earn while you learn, and progress onto higher skilled occupations. The University of Gloucestershire has secured funding for higher and degree apprenticeships, meaning your employer saves on the fee, and you pay nothing. Get in touch to ask us about the funding available.

Learning takes place in the workplace, in the classroom and online. You’ll be supported with your studies and have access to all the help you need to succeed.

Earn while you learn

Our higher and degree apprenticeships give you the opportunity to gain professional accreditation, take advantage of career progression opportunities, reach higher earnings potential and achieve your ambitions. They are employer-led and built around the needs of the business you work in, meaning you develop the skills you need to move your career forward, and your employer benefits from the impact straight away.

Higher or degree apprenticeships are aimed at individuals who have been working for some time and want to progress, or complement their experience with new learning and a qualification while continuing to work. They are the perfect way to deliver innovative thinking and new ways of working for your employer.
