About this course
Apprenticeships are designed by sector professionals and are aimed at employed people. They can be suitable as a way to upskill existing members of staff or as a pathway for new recruits.
Small groups and specially-designed learning sessions will ensure that apprentices get the most out of their time in workshops and lectures. 6 hours per week of the apprenticeship will be off-the-job learning – this includes work-based projects and job-related activities.
There are no direct fees paid by the apprentices as the programme is supported through the apprenticeship levy.
Successful apprentices will gain a Certificate of Higher Education in Working with Children, Young People and Families within the Community
Programme Duration and Delivery
This apprenticeship is delivered through a blended learning approach. Apprentices benefit from face-to-face and online lectures and seminars, delivered by Leeds Trinity University. In addition to this, apprentices will also complete independent research activities which can be undertaken in the workplace.
We offer extensive support to all of our apprentices – whatever their background or academic experience. This includes access to our peer support mentors and The Learning Hub, which gives tailored support for academic skills.
Degree Apprenticeships are fully funded by the employer if their wage bill is over £3 million each year. The government will fund up to 95% of the apprenticeships course fees, up to the relevant funding gap, if the organisation has paid into the levy at least once during the financial year or if the organisation has spent all its levy.
