Leeds Trinity University > Apprenticeships


Information for employers

As one of the UK's top universities for e​mployability, Leeds Trinity University works in close partnership with employers across all sectors – from schools and colleges​, to private, public and third sector organisations. Our Apprenticeships offer a work-based learning experience leading to a nationally recognised Apprenticeship. They incorporate a higher education qualification such as a Bachelor's Degree or Higher Education Certificate.


​Our professional Apprenticeships are aimed at both new and existing employees, and combine part-time study at Leeds Trinity University with workplace training. Designed in collaboration with employers, Higher and Degree Apprenticeships are a cost-effective way to attract and retain talent, up-skill your workforce and increase productivity. 

Higher level skills are vital to business performance and economic growth. Through Apprenticeships, you can fill your higher level skills gaps efficiently and effectively by tailoring the learning to your workplace. Apprenticeships can:

  • Help you to attract and retain higher calibre staff
  • Provide opportunities for existing staff to progress
  • Develop a more motivated and committed workforce

Apprentices develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours which are crucial to the demands of their job role, meaning that they are able to meet the demands of your business whilst keeping your business up-to-date with the latest techniques and technology.  


Levy-paying employers - Employers with an annual payroll bill of £3 million or over can use their apprenticeship levy contributions towards the cost of training. The government will part-fund these apprenticeships by investing 10% of the total costs.

Non levy-paying employers - If you are employer who doesn’t pay into the levy and are interested taking on an apprentice, please get in-touch to discuss apprenticeship levy transfers.
