Information for Employers

The Degree Apprentice represents a strategy to retain and recruit your talent which going forward can help you to achieve your organisational goals, reduce skills shortages and offer a way to grow your own work force.

Business and Law offer a variety of learning options for your employees, the standard method of learning is through fortnightly day release embedded with a combination of independent study with an assessment day. We are also pleased to offer tailored Chartered Manager programmes to clients where a suitable cohort size is available which allows employers to suit their own business needs, examples are distance, block and on site learning.

Employees on the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship will be directly solving work-based problems, therefore overcoming challenges within the organisation. The achievements can be shared through an e-portfolio evidencing progress. We offer a blended learning approach to independent learning, utilising the virtual learning environment (Moodle), available for apprentices to access in their own time.

The courses offer full mentoring with an option of outside leaders assisting from the local community. If you prefer managing and mentoring your Degree Apprentice it is a great development opportunity for your existing workforce, especially for staff who do not currently have people management responsibilities. The University provides the support they need via mentoring courses. Please contact us for further information.

Most employers find that investing in the skills of their workforce helps their business brand by demonstrating their commitment to delivering high-quality products and services. In other words, your clients will be reassured that you will have the skills to carry out their current and future contracts.
