Higher Apprenticeships

Higher Apprenticeships, Opening The Door To Go higher

​What are Higher Apprenticeships?

Higher Apprenticeships are the gold standard of Apprenticeship training programmes. They take the principles of Apprenticeship training (gaining qualifications and experience through a mixture of on- and off-the-job learning) and take them to a higher level.

These programmes have been created in consultation with employers in key industry sectors who have identified skills gaps at a mid-senior level within their organisations. Therefore, Higher Apprenticeships provide candidates with exactly the skills, knowledge and experience employers are looking for. They also place successful candidates way ahead of the pack for promotion or career advancement.

In short, Higher Apprenticeships give employees the chance to build up practical work experience while progressing academically up to Degree level  all whilst being paid a decent salary.

What qualifications do you get?

Higher Apprenticeships are a suite of training qualifications selected specifically to suit the skills needs of employers and the sector they operate in.

In many instances the qualifications you gain are nationally recognised by that sector and valuable in their own right, including:

  • NVQ Levels 4 and 5
  • Foundation Degrees
  • HNCs or HNDs
  • First step towards professional qualifications
