Degree apprenticeships
Designed around employer needs, our degree apprenticeships introduce knowledge and skills to apply straight away at work. Employers benefit from highly motivated employees, who will gain their degree on day release.

Ambitions for a better future
Our goal is to empower students to build the life and career they want. And to make a real contribution to their communities. That’s why sustainability, green tech and the environment will be key themes across our courses, research and innovation activities.

Industry connections

Our courses are relevant to the rapidly changing world. We build strong links with local employers so our students can work on real projects, gain valuable skills through placements and make professional contacts. We also offer learning at work opportunities for staff and bespoke CPD programmes.

Local schools and colleges

We want to make mutually supportive connections with the local education community and help inspire young people to explore their options for life after school and college. From choosing the right course to preparing for the student experience, we offer a range of presentations, workshops, activities and advice.

Third sector
As part of their degrees, students will be working on projects with a community focus so we’re looking for local projects to help them gain real industry experience that has a direct and positive impact on the area in which they live and study.
