Leeds Trinity University is developing new employer-led Higher and Degree Apprenticeships. From September 2017 we will be introducing new Apprenticeships in the following areas:
- Children, Young People and Families
- Healthcare practice
- Supply Chain Management
Our programmes will offer a work-based learning experience leading to a nationally recognised apprenticeship. They will incorporate a higher education qualification such as a bachelor’s degree or higher education certificate. All higher education programmes are subject to validation.
An apprenticeship is a job, in a skilled occupation, that requires substantial and sustained training leading to the achievement of an apprenticeship standard and the development of transferable skills to progress careers
How does it work?
Apprentices will split their time between University study and the workplace and will be employed throughout – gaining a full qualification from the university while earning a wage and getting real on-the-job experience in their chosen profession.
Apprentices can be newly recruited staff but can also be existing staff looking to develop skills and progress in their career.
Apprenticeships will be heavily incentivised and subsidised, with the government covering 90% of training costs in many cases. From spring 2017 larger organisations will pay for apprenticeships through a fixed levy as an incentive to get involved.
We would like to hear your views on how an apprenticeship can add value to your organisation and would love to work in partnership with you to ensure our apprenticeships meet your needs, covers the necessary skills and knowledge, and is in line with your working practices.
