A Degree Apprenticeship is a great way to train your employees to a graduate or Master's level whilst they’re working.
They gain university education and experience, whilst training on-the-job.
You increase your productivity and performance by attracting and developing the very best talent.
Degree Apprenticeships are the Government's flagship skills programme, allowing employers to attract new staff, develop existing staff and improve staff retention.
Our Degree Apprenticeships are funded by the apprenticeship levy.

With more than 50 years teaching excellence the University of Bradford engages with hundreds of businesses each year.
As part of our Degree Apprenticeships we have established relationships with many organisations, including Morrisons and the NHS.
If you’re a levy-paying employer (if you have more than a £3million pay bill) your organisation will already pay 0.5% tax of your wage bill, each year which can then only be spent on approved apprenticeships.
Your levy payments roll over from month to month. If not spent in 24 months the levy will expire and your money will be lost.
You will pay for training from your levy through the Digital Apprenticeship Service, which is an online service that allows employers to choose and pay for apprenticeship training more easily.
If your organisation is not required to pay the levy, a new ‘co-investment’ rate is available. Co-investment is when employers and Government share the cost of training and assessing an apprentice.
If your organisation’s total wage bill is below the £3million threshold, the Government will fund up to 90% of apprenticeship course fees, up to the relevant funding cap. For employers with less than 50 employees, you receive 100% funding for apprentices who are under the age of 19 when they start their course.
We have partnered with the University of Bradford to create a unique, tailor-made programme that’s designed to unlock young people’s potential. It means they can work, earn and learn while studying towards a degree and preparing for a management career.
