The degree apprenticeship is a new type of award which combines the workplace learning of a traditional apprenticeship with a higher education qualification such as a BSc or BEng.
Wrexham Glyndŵr University is one of the providers for the new degree apprenticeships pilot in Wales. These pilot programmes are available in Digital/Computing and Engineering/Manufacturing and started in May 2018.
An apprentice is employed by a company to learn the skills, knowledge and behaviours necessary to help both the company and the individual succeed, progress and thrive. Apprenticeships offer the opportunity to earn while you learn.
The first step in applying for an apprenticeship is to find an employer who is recruiting apprentices in the area that you want to study; however you don’t need to be a new recruit to start an apprenticeship programme, you and your employer may be looking to develop your skills further. Apprenticeships are all age programmes.
As a new initiative, Wrexham Glyndŵr University has designed and developed five new programmes aligned to these two sectors in partnership with a range of clients.
Applications are now open for the following programmes:
- BSc (Hons) Cyber security
- BSc (Hons) Computing
- BEng Production Engineering
- BEng (Hons) Industrial Engineering Design (Mechanical)
- BEng (Hons) Industrial Engineering Design (Electrical)
To be eligible for the funding for these programmes, you must:
- be in employment in Wales
- be supported by your employer to undertake the level of study required
- meet the standard entry requirements for the programmes
- have not studied a similar subject at this level or higher previously.
Apprenticeship programmes are fully funded, so you will not pay any fees.
