In order for the UK to continue competing in the global market, our economy will increasingly focus on high value and high skill activities. This means that employment now, and in the future, requires more highly skilled people.
Higher Apprenticeships are the best combination of on the job training and studying for a higher level qualification to give you the knowledgeable workforce your business needs.
Like intermediate and advanced Apprenticeships, higher Apprenticeships combine on the job training while studying towards a high level qualification. Higher Apprenticeships are available at a range of levels, from the equivalent of a foundation degree to a bachelor’s degree and soon at master’s degree level in some sectors.
To start a higher Apprenticeship, individuals need to have entry qualifications typically at level 3 such as A-levels, advanced level diploma, NVQ level 3 or an advanced Apprenticeship.
The Government want to make Higher Apprenticeships available to more businesses, with a target of an additional 20,000 higher apprenticeships by July 2015.
