For Employers

Degree apprenticeships are developed with industry in mind to better meet the needs of employers.

A degree apprenticeship combines academic study at university with on-the-job training in the workplace. Designed in partnership with industry to meet professional standards, degree apprenticeships are a great way to attract and retain talent for your business, boost productivity and up-skill your workforce.

This alternative route to higher level qualifications can be accessed by both your current employees or used as a tool to attract new talent to your business.

  • Develop and up-skill your workforce in a cost-effective manner                          
  • Recruit and develop ambitious, motivated students                          
  • Increase retention by offering your workforce the chance to develop and progress              
  • Retain your talent and gain access to a broader talent pool                        
  • Tailor apprentices' learning to your business requirements                          
  • Work around your commitments with a flexible range of study options for students including block delivery at university and online learning

Apprenticeship Levy

The government is committed to achieving three million apprenticeship starts by summer 2020. To fund the increase in apprenticeships, the government introduced an apprenticeship levy in April 2017.

Employers with pay bills of over £3 million, are now required to pay a levy which can only be reclaimed to fund Apprenticeship training.
