Highworth offers support and guidance through the whole process of applying for apprenticeships. An apprenticeship is the perfect way to experience a certain workplace or industry whilst still learning. 1-4 years of training is given which lets you truly learn the skills of the vocation you have chosen. An apprentice will be employed, working alongside experienced staff, to gain the skills, knowledge and behaviours needed to be fully competent in their chosen occupation.

Degree Level Apprenticeships:

Degree Level Apprenticeships are a new type of programme offered by universities since 2015. The programmes are being developed by employers, universities and professional bodies. They offer students the chance to achieve a full bachelor’s or master’s degree as part of their apprenticeship.

Programmes are structured in one of two ways:

1. Employers, universities, and professional bodies come together to co-design a fully-integrated degree course specifically for apprentices, which delivers and tests both academic learning and on-the-job training.

2. Sectors may use existing degree programmes to deliver the academic knowledge requirements of that profession.  They would then combine this with additional training to meet the full apprenticeship training requirements.


It can sometimes be harder/take longer to find an apprenticeship than to select a university, so research is really important.

You will want to look into the following:

What the job entails?  The Job Description.

What type of person would this job suit?  The Person Specification.

Is the training provider accredited?  Who are you doing your training with? What qualification will you gain at the end of your apprenticeship?

How long will the apprenticeship last?

What does your contract look like?  What are your working hours, what benefits are you entitled to, how much will you be paid?
