Apprenticeships in development

We are committed to working with employers and Trailblazer groups to develop industry relevant Degree Apprenticeship courses in line with the relevant standards.

The programmes we are currently developing are;

Advanced Clinical Practice (level 7)

This apprenticeship is designed to develop experienced clinicians who demonstrate expertise in their scope of practice. Advanced Clinical Practitioners will combine expert clinical skills with research, education and clinical leadership within their scope of practice. 


In planning

Accountancy / Taxation Professional (level 7)

Accountancy / Taxation Professionals are recognised around the world as respected leaders in accountancy, taxation, finance and business. Accountancy / Taxation Professionals use technical knowledge, skills and experience to lead organisations and people to make responsible and sustainable financial decisions. They are required to act in the public interest and must therefore maintain the highest standards of professional conduct and competency; upholding ethical behaviour and integrity at all times.


In planning

Building Services Design Engineer (level 6)

Working within renewable and emerging technologies, apprentices will typically work in team leader roles supervising engineers and technicians, as well as collaborating with construction professionals on building and infrastructure projects. 


Delivery TBC

Hearing Aid Dispenser (level 5)

This apprenticeship is still in development with the trailblazer employers - details soon to be released. 


Delivery dependant on standard approval

Postgraduate Engineer (level 7)

The Postgraduate Engineer Master's Degree Apprenticeship is typically studied over two years and includes the following pathways:

  • Design and Development Engineer
  • Systems Integration Engineer
  • Engineering Business Manager
  • Research and Development Engineer
  • Manufacture/Production Engineer

During the programme apprentices will study core modules (some of which are common for all pathways) and will then make a choice from a list of elective modules. The elective modules have been carefully chosen and developed to reflect different industry sectors including energy and power, automation and robotics, design, and materials and manufacturing. An indicative list of core and optional modules (subject to validation) include: Advanced Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer, Advanced Solid Mechanics, Robotics, Digital Manufacturing, Structural Integrity: Designing Against Failure, Advanced Composite Materials, Systems Operations Management, Resource Efficient Design, Computer Aided Design and FE Analysis, Sustainable Energy, Low Carbon Transport, Environmental Management and Policy, Power Generation and Transmission, Energy Analysis Techniques, Mechatronic Systems Engineering and Artificial Intelligence, Programming and Software Engineering / Embedded Systems, The Engineering Business Environment, Study Skills and Research Methods, and Leadership and Management.

We follow an employer-led approach to new programme development and are particularly interested to hear from employers about their own requirements.
