Information for learners

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. 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. 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. Ensure you select the part-time route for the course. Before you start your application, check that you have all your information to hand, including your personal statement.

4. Enter into an Apprenticeship Agreement

All three parties (employer, apprentice and LJMU) will sign an Apprenticeship Agreement.

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.
