Take advantage of local Degree Apprentices to upskill your staff at minimal cost

Degree Apprentices were launched by the Government last year; they allow employees to work while studying part-time for a degree, They are available in all sorts of subjects at Universities in the Solent region. They are incredible value for businesses to up their skills level at minimal costs - including business leadership.

Degree apprenticeships allow you to work as an employee while also studying part-time for a full Bachelor's or Master's degree.

They combine the academic study from a traditional university degree with the practical on-the-job experience and employment skills required for a successful career. They were developed in a partnership between the Government, employers and universities.

Degree apprenticeships take between one and five years to complete, depending on the course you take. You'll typically go to university one day a week for around 30 weeks every year. On the weeks you don't go to University, you'll still spend 20% of your time training away from your normal working environment.

Degree apprenticeships are suitable for people of all ages. You could be already in employment or beginning your career.

Currently the Government is offering non-apprenticeship levy paying companies 90% off the cost of these training programmes with costs for business leadership skills courses starting at 900 instead of the full value of 9,000. But hurry these subsidies will not last forever. Employee training time commitments vary from day release to weekend learning for anything from 18 months to spread over 4 years.
