The University of Gloucestershire is the county’s leading provider of higher and degree apprenticeships

At the University of Gloucestershire, you can study on apprenticeships leading to both bachelor’s and master’s degrees, as well as professional qualifications.

Higher and degree apprenticeships are work-based staff training programmes, part-funded by the government. They enable people of all ages to earn a wage while studying.

Our apprenticeships cater for individuals with a variety of existing qualifications and levels of experience—from career entrants, to experienced professionals. All our higher and degree apprenticeships combine high quality academic qualifications with on-the-job training.

The university is currently teaching to more than 300 apprentices and these numbers are continuing to rise year on year.

Apprenticeship programmes currently on offer at the University of Gloucestershire include:

  • Academic Professional Master’s Degree Apprenticeship (level 7)
  • Senior Leader Master’s Degree Apprenticeship (level 7)
  • Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (level 6)
  • Cyber Security Degree Apprenticeship (level 6)
  • Industrial Control Engineer Degree Apprenticeship (level 6)
  • Manufacturing Engineer Degree Apprenticeship (level 6)
  • Registered Nurse Degree Apprenticeship (level 6)
  • Social Worker Degree Apprenticeship (level 6)
  • Nursing Associate Higher Apprenticeship (level 5)
  • Financial Adviser Higher Apprenticeship (level 4)
  • Working with Children, Young People and Families Higher Apprenticeship (level 4)

In 2020, we will also be launching a Digital Marketer Degree Apprenticeship (level 6), a Project Management Degree Apprenticeship (level 6) and a Learning and Skills Teacher Higher Apprenticeship (level 5). What’s more, new programmes are becoming available all the time, so visit our website for the latest information.

If you would like to do an apprenticeship with the University of Gloucestershire, you need to be in full-time employment (eg, employed for at least 30 hours per week), in a job that relates to the apprenticeship you are interested in. This is because you need to be able to put your new

skills into practice in your workplace. Therefore, speak to your employer in the first instance and tell them you want to do an apprenticeship—there is funding available from the government and if you work for a large organisation they may be able to reclaim the cost of your apprenticeship from their apprenticeship levy.
