Learning, Teaching and Assessment
Programme Duration and Delivery
It will typically take three years to complete the Degree Apprenticeship, however, there may also be opportunities to join part way through the programme if candidates have considerable experience in a particular area.
Apprentices will benefit from lectures and seminars, delivered on campus or in-company. Learning is supported by a variety of online tasks and independent research activities which can be undertaken in the work place. Each apprentice will create a learning plan which will allow them to develop their own unique pathway to their personal and professional goals.
Throughout the programme apprentices are assessed via various methods including:
- Sales pitches
- Work-based projects
Apprentices will also create a learning journal throughout the programme in order to allow them to demonstrate how they have achieved the knowledge, skills and behaviours set out in the Apprenticeship standard.
The final part of the Apprenticeship is the 'end-point assessment' which is an integral part of the degree. This is based on a substantial work-based project which is agreed by both the employer and the University in the final six months of the Apprenticeship, an interview and sales pitch.
