Degree Apprenticeships

Plus Icon Is teaching still being delivered as timetabled?

In order to reduce unnecessary social contact, your School has moved to online learning resources. Further information on teaching arrangements will be communicated by School staff. A substantial amount of your course content is available through MyBeckett so we would encourage you to use MyBeckett for self-study.

Plus Icon My organisation has reduced my hours at work so I’m now part time. Can I continue with my apprenticeship?

Apprenticeship funding rules allow for part-time study, so please contact your employer and Course Director to discuss how this can be arranged, along with how your 20% off the job training will be calculated and completed. Please note that part-time work will not be appropriate for some apprenticeships.

Plus Icon My organisation requires me to work full time and I cannot continue with 20% off the job training. What should I do?

If you are unable to undertake the 20% off the job training as planned, please contact your employer and Course Director to discuss a possible break in learning and how you may restart your apprenticeship at a later date.

Plus Icon What if I cannot provide gateway evidence to my employer due to any potential delay to exam results?

The university is currently planning to ensure that no student is disadvantaged in relation to the confirmation of assessment outcomes. Further information on this will be available soon and communicated to you.

Plus Icon What if my contract is due to end before my End Point Assessment is scheduled?

The university and your employer will support you to ensure you are not disadvantaged with any changes to assessments on your apprenticeship. Please contact your employer and Course Director to discuss how this situation can be managed.

Plus Icon I have assessments due. Do I still need submit them?

We are working to deliver assessments to take place remotely wherever possible. Your School will be in touch with you to confirm arrangements once they are finalised.

Plus Icon My employer has changed my role to manage my organisation's response to coronavirus (Covid-19) Can I carry on studying?

Any changes that are made are likely to be specific to your apprenticeship, please contact your Course Director to discuss how your new role meets the requirements of your apprenticeship.

In some cases, you may need to instigate a break in study from your apprenticeship.

Plus Icon My organisation has furloughed me. How does this affect my apprenticeship?

Where apprentices are furloughed (granted a leave of absence) you are permitted to continue your training with the University as we are continuing to deliver this remotely.

For further information please visit the Furloughed apprentices – Apprenticeship Service Support webpage.
