Fill the skill gaps within your organisation

Degree apprenticeships provide an affordable solution to staff development and skill gaps within your business.

Whilst employed by your company, an apprentice will study with the 麻豆头条app as they work towards a full degree qualification aligned to the needs of your business.

This enables them to apply their new skills directly within their professional roles, embedding their learning, and creating opportunities within the workplace for new thinking.

"A major benefit of the apprenticeship programme to Eurotherm involves the acquisition of young talent into the organisation, which introduces new ideas and innovation to the business."

Develop your existing staff or hire a new starter

Apprenticeships are open to existing or new members of staff.

Our dedicated Apprenticeship team can support you in finding the correct course for existing staff members, as well as support you to find external applicants.

A cost-effective way to boost your business

Degree apprenticeships are funded through the Apprenticeship Levy, which can be used to cover training costs.

In some circumstances you can receive an incentive payment of 拢1,000 when you recruit an apprentice, although this is dependent on your type of business and the apprentice you support.
