Grow your business and drive innovation with higher and degree apprenticeships at Newcastle University

Grow your business and drive innovation with higher and degree apprenticeships at Newcastle University

Higher and degree apprenticeships combine on-the-job training with study, leading to a qualification at Bachelor’s or Master’s degree level.

Here’s three ways they can help you develop the skilled workforce your business needs.

1. For stronger skills

Higher and degree apprenticeships are structured learning programmes that combine workplace training with study. They are tailored to specific job roles, enabling employees to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours they need to progress in an existing role or transition into a new one.

2. For moving up

Employees can earn a relevant degree, qualifying them as a specialist in their field.

Developing the skills in your workforce can also have wider benefits, particularly if an apprentice leads a team or working group and uses their knowledge to mentor others.

Apprenticeships empower staff, making them feel valued and increasing their business loyalty – helping you retain talented employees.

3. For business growth

Higher and degree apprenticeships allow you to invest in your staff, growing talent in your workforce that’s tailored to your business needs.

Because they are designed with occupational roles in mind, all training is applicable in the workplace. This can be hugely valuable in filling skills gaps and developing specialist expertise, so your business stays at the forefront of technology and working practices in your sector.

Apprenticeships can future-proof your business – helping you drive innovation and growth.

“Apprenticeships give you the opportunity to ‘grow your own’ entry level talent coming into your business, get people transferable qualifications and give them the valuable workplace experience that they can use within your company.”
