Apprenticeships for University staff

Find out more about what opportunities are available to support your career development.

As a University, we pay into an apprenticeship levy on a monthly basis. These funds can be used to support you in your professional development − to master new skills or gain a recognised qualification.

The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education have a wide range of apprenticeship opportunities you can sign up to − from Customer Service to Pharmacology and from Level 2 (pre GCSE equivalent) to Level 7 (Masters degree equivalent).

To be eligible to access our University levy funds for an apprenticeship, you must have a valid and eligible residency status. Find out more about the eligibility criteria.
