Higher & Degree Apprenticeships

Higher and Degree Apprenticeships bring together the best of higher and vocational training, allowing students to study for a degree whilst gaining on the job training and earning a salary.

As a Degree Apprentice you will split your time between university study and the workplace and will be employed throughout. Your training will involve a degree, as a primary part of the apprenticeship, designed in partnership with employers to make sure it is relevant to what the skills industry is looking for. As with other Apprenticeships, the cost of course fees is shared between government and employers, meaning no cost to you. Degree Apprenticeships are suitable for college leavers as an alternative route to gaining a degree and for existing employees looking to progress in their career.

We currently offer a Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship and a Leadership & Management Higher Apprenticeship. Subjects on offer will increase as new Apprenticeship standards become available. See our Vocational & School Leavers Section for information on the L3 Team Leader/Supervisor Apprenticeship.

For employers:  In April 2017 the Government introduced a new apprenticeship levy which applies to all UK employers with a pay bill of over £3 million annually. Some employers have registered to become training providers in their own right so that they can draw down the levy and provide apprenticeships for their own staff, in which case they may be looking for a formal qualification to form part of the apprenticeship whilst other employers will be searching for a training or educational provider who is registered to provide apprenticeships.
In either case, we at Peter Symonds College can help and would welcome the opportunity to talk to you about your staff training needs. We are an outstanding college and have been delivering part-time vocationally related qualifications to adults in the workforce for many years. We therefore understand the needs of those returning to education. If you have a specific requirement, please let us know. We are a flexible organisation with a large skill base, so we can tailor our offering to employer requirements.
