Complete guide to higher and degree apprenticeships
Over 20,000 people have started a higher apprenticeship since August 2013 and this figure looks set to grow. The government has pledged to create 3 million apprenticeships across all levels by 2020.
Now there is a real alternative to traditional university study. With the growth of higher and degree apprenticeships, you have the opportunity to move your career forward and gain professional skills – and all while working and earning a salary.
