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. Levy funds support existing staff with the fantastic development opportunity that will enable you to master new skills and gain a recognised qualification.

Apprenticeship standards (Apprenticeship standards / Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education) have been developed across many areas from Customer Service to Pharmacology and from Level 2 (pre GCSE equivalent) to Level 7 (Masters degree equivalent).

To use funds in the employer’s apprenticeship service account or government-employer co-investment, you must have a valid and eligible residency status. More information on the eligibility criteria can be found here

You can make a request to access the Apprenticeship Levy Funds to support and develop you or your team. Please click the link at the bottom of the page to complete a request form.
