How can an apprenticeship benefit you?

Apprenticeships are a great way to address any skills gaps and learn the latest industry knowledge. Addressing these gaps can lead to greater work satisfaction by boosting your confidence when completing tasks and projects.

The University ensures that you are supported every step of the way. We will provide a Learner Mentor who will conduct regular meetings to ensure you are getting the correct support. You will also have a dedicated faculty and a Personal Academic Tutor for support with the completion of your qualification.
