Degree apprenticeships offer a practical and work-related approach to gaining a degree qualification and we currently have places available for our business and engineering courses this September.

Large employers are required by the government to pay into a degree apprenticeship levy; this levy is used to upskill employees by funding degree apprenticeships. There is also funding available for smaller employers, through the co-investment model and levy transfers.

Whether you are an employee looking to gain a funded degree whilst continuing in your current job, or an employer looking to find out how you could access funds to upskill your existing staff or recruit new talent, you can find out more at our online event. Each session will include a short presentation followed by an opportunity to ask our expert panel any questions you might have. Once you have registered you can just join the sessions of interest to you, there is no need to attend them all. We would encourage you to join at the start of the session that you are interested in as this is when the presentations will take place.
