Apprenticeships in our University

We would like students to understand the different career options for the future and we have launched new apprenticeships that provide a briefing of what careers are available in the industry, as well as skills and characteristics required. 

This can then be used as a base to further develop skills or knowledge at school. 

Upon completion of the apprenticeship, students will receive a certificate as accreditation.
