This webinar session will demonstrate how we can help you or your team to develop degree-level skills in Laboratory Science, in a cost-effective way.
The Level 6 Laboratory Scientist (Chemistry) degree apprenticeship programme combines the best of research-led education with the world of work. It gives apprentices the opportunity to inform their academic studies with real-world experience. Refining scientific approaches, deepening research and expanding networks enhances apprentices learning and confidence and enables them to make significant contributions to their employer's organisation.
The webinar will cover:
- Entry requirements and eligibility
- Funding information
- Course content
- Factoring off-the-job learning into the working week
- Recruitment and support
- Q&A session with Programme Director and Employer Engagement Team
Who is the webinar for?
This webinar is designed for businesses who would like to learn more about developing degree-level laboratory skills in a chemistry pathway within their organisations via a degree apprenticeship. This may be upskilling existing staff or using the programme to attract new talent to their organisation.
Employees currently working in roles that would allow them to develop degree level skills, knowledge and behaviours of a Laboratory Scientist (Chemistry) are also welcome to register.
Apprentices must be employed in a role that allows them to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours of a Laboratory Scientist (Chemistry).
