The Degree Apprenticeship process
The following steps outline the process of becoming a Degree Apprentice with LJMU.
1. Find an opportunity
If you aren’t already employed by a company that is willing to sponsor you through an apprenticeship, you’ll need to find one. You can do this by regularly checking the latest Degree Apprenticeship vacancies posted by employers or through the Government’s Find an apprenticeship website. You can also approach an employer yourself to find out whether they would be interested in offering Degree Apprenticeships and ask them to contact LJMU. If you can’t find an appropriate opportunity, be sure to register your interest and we’ll do all that we can to help you.
2. Apply for the role and ensure you meet the course requirements
Just like any other job application, you’ll go through a recruitment process with the employer. Check out our interview tips to help you prepare for your Degree Apprenticeship interview. You’ll also need to meet the entry requirements to attend Liverpool John Moores University just like any other student. To do this find your course and make sure you meet the requirements of the particular course associated with your Degree Apprenticeship.
3. Apply for your course
To apply for a Degree Apprenticeship course complete the online application form. Before you start your application, check that you have all your information to hand, including your personal statement.
4. Enter into an Apprenticeship Commitment Statement
You’ll enter into an employment/apprenticeship contract with your employer which will set out the obligations of all parties involved in the apprenticeship.
5. Start working and learning
From day one you’ll be working towards getting your degree and all the while gaining valuable experience and earning a wage. You’ll continue working with your employer throughout the apprenticeship and there’s a good chance you’ll be asked to stay on after the apprenticeship.
