Whats are the benefits of apprenticeships

Degree apprenticeships offer routes into becoming an AHP through a mix of on-the-job training and classroom learning.

Work-based focus

Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes which are designed to help employers train people for specific job roles.

The majority of learning exposure will take place in the work environment, augmented by knowledge, skills and behaviours gained through engagement with academic and clinical practitioners.

A blended approach

A degree apprenticeship allows you to combine university education, work-based learning and professional development.

In addition to getting a paid job you will work towards a nationally recognised apprenticeship standard or framework.

A qualified success

On successful completion of training you will be awarded a degree or masters qualification.

You will also be eligible to apply for registration to practise and are eligible to apply for full membership with the relevant professional body.

How employers can access funding for apprenticeships

There are three ways to access funding to pay for apprenticeship training, this funding does not cover salary costs you will have to fund the apprentice’s salary.

Apprenticeship Levy

Employers with a pay bill over £3 million each year, pay the apprenticeship levy. Levy paying employers can spend their apprenticeship levy
funding on apprenticeship training.

Reserve government co-investment

If you don’t pay the apprenticeship levy
you can reserve funding, where the government pays 95% of the training costs and the employer pays the remaining 5%.

Levy Transfer

Levy paying employers can transfer some of their annual levy to other employers. These transfers cover 100% of the training costs of the apprenticeship (you still need to cover salary).
