Degree apprenticeships are a new opportunity for learning offered by universities and training providers. Students can achieve a full bachelor's or master's degree as part of their apprenticeship.
These apprenticeships are being developed by employers, universities/providers, and professional bodies working in partnership.
Degree apprenticeships combine working with studying part-time at a university. Apprentices are employed throughout the programme, and spend part of their time learning and the rest with their employer. This can be on a day-to-day basis or in blocks of time, depending on the apprenticeship and requirements of the employer.
They can take between two to six years to complete, depending on the course level.
Degree apprenticeships are still quite new, it's anticipated that the number of opportunities will grow over the next year or two.
