University Centre Colchester’s higher and degree apprenticeships offer a unique way to develop your professional skills, progress academically and enhance your career prospects while remaining in paid employment.
Employer-led standards provide specialist industry based training and assessment, allowing you to acquire higher level skills that can lead to professional accreditation and membership in some apprenticeships. With funding available for higher and degree apprenticeships, you can study without incurring the cost of tuition fees or running up student debt.
Working closely with employers, our apprenticeship programmes meet industry needs and incorporate current practice in areas including management, engineering, procurement, accounting, teaching and learning, and information technology. Higher apprenticeships at Level 4 and 5 are equivalent to a CertHE, DipHE or Foundation degree levels, with Level 6 and 7 equivalent to Bachelor’s and Master’s degree levels.
