How do degree apprenticeships work?

Apprentice students willl undertake academically rigorous, part-time study that is built around your business. Our programmes will help your employees to bring ideas and up-to-date knowledge and skills back into the workplace.

Delivered under a blended learning model, apprentice students will benefit from a minimum of 20% of their working time being spent in off-the-job learning, whether on campus in lectures, seminars and practical workshops, or accessed online through remote learning.

We will work with local, regional and national businesses to understand your strategic priorities and challenges. Our programmes will be built to offer real value which can be tailored to a sector, or even developed bespoke to your own business.

Why partner with the University of Nottingham?

A member of the Russell Group, University of Nottingham has award-winning campuses in China and Malaysia as well as 330 acres of parkland in its home city, one of the most attractive university settings in the UK.

Combining our excellent, TEF Gold award winning teaching with our outstanding research capabilities and world leading campuses and facilities presents a compelling case both for talent attraction and for retaining and developing existing staff within your business.

What is the apprenticeships levy?

The apprenticeships levy is a government initiative that funds the development and delivery of apprenticeships. Funding for apprenticeships is generated through the levy, introduced in April 2017. Businesses in England with a paybill of £3m or more, pay a 0.5% levy on that paybill which can only be spent on apprenticeship training.

The levy gives employers more control to tailor the development to their own needs and challenges.

Get in touch with our team to find out how we can help your organisation to get the most from the levy.
