Higher and degree apprenticeships - information for employers and HEIs
Information for employers and higher education institutions about higher and degree apprenticeships.
Higher and degree apprenticeships offer an apprentice the opportunity to combine working while studying for a work-based academic or vocational high-level qualification.
These apprenticeships include the achievement of academic and vocational qualifications and learning from Level 4 upwards.
- are the latest model to be developed as part of higher apprenticeship standards, with apprentices achieving a full bachelor’s or master’s degree as a core component of the apprenticeship
- combine both higher and vocational education and fully test both the wider occupational competence and academic learning, either using a fully-integrated degree co-designed by employers and Higher Education Institutions, or using a degree plus separate end test of professional competence
A full list of higher and degree apprenticeship standards ready for delivery, and in development, can be found on the apprenticeship standards page.
