Apprenticeships: Information for Apprentices

Interested in earning while learning? An apprenticeship combines on-the-job training with academic learning. It leads to a nationally recognised qualification and provides you with the opportunity to acquire the relevant knowledge, skills and behaviours to be fully competent and confident in your chosen area of work.

If you are a school leaver looking for an alternative route to full-time university, or an existing employee seeking to gain a higher-level qualification to enhance your career progression, a higher or degree apprenticeship could be the ideal choice.

NTU offer apprenticeships starting from Level 3 and up to Level 7.

Degree apprenticeships were introduced by the Government in March 2015 and have become a popular alternative route to full-time university education.
