A higher apprenticeship is a great way to get into higher education while still working in the industry and developing your skills and knowledge.

Much like our Level 2 or 3 apprenticeships, our higher apprenticeships will give you the skills you need to excel in your chosen field while providing real world work experience. If you have A levels, a Level 3 vocational course or apprenticeship qualifications you may be considered for a higher apprenticeship.

We currently offer the following higher apprenticeships:

  • Health Assistant Practitioner
  • Care Leadership and Management
  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Accountancy
  • HR Management
  • Management and Leadership
  • Engineering
  • School Business Professional*

*Subject to approval.
