How does the Degree Apprenticeship work?
As an apprentice, new or existing employees study for their degree whilst in full-time employment. This means they are quickly able to put their newly acquired knowledge and skills into action in the workplace.
A tailored learning package to meet the Association for Project Management (APM) standard is agreed between the employer, the university and the apprentice. To conclude the course, apprentices are required to take an End Point Assessment and, if successful, become eligible for APM membership.
Modules will be delivered on a weekly basis and apprentices will also have assignments and further academic study throughout this time. However, much of the learning happens in the workplace through shadowing and learning a range of project management activities.
How to Apply
Please note applications are submitted through the relevant employer, not directly from applicants.
Before starting an apprenticeship, applicants will be required to sign a “Commitment Statement” which details key information regarding the apprenticeship such as learning requirements, responsibilities of the apprentice, employer and university, assessments, delivery schedule, etc, some of which are detailed below.

This will be supplemented by a ‘Statement of Commitment’ signed by the employer, provider, and apprentice, setting out the expectations, roles and responsibility of each party involved in the apprenticeship
