Our Higher and Degree Apprenticeships are suitable for those starting a career, changing direction, or upskilling themselves in their current job.

They offer an alternative route into many professions. Apprentices divide their time between their place of work and studying one day a week or on block release.

We were one of the first colleges in the UK to deliver higher apprenticeships in construction and the built environment. We work alongside top employers and industry bodies to ensure each apprentice gains skills required by the construction sector.
