Degree Apprenticeships offer students the opportunity to achieve a full bachelor's (Level 6) or master's (Level 7) degree by combining full-time work with part-time study through a training provider or a university, like the University of Hertfordshire.
Apprentices are employed throughout their programme, spending part of their time at university and the rest with their employer.
Degree apprenticeship programmes are constructed in accordance with Apprenticeship Standards, which define the occupational profile linked to the knowledge, skills and behaviours (KSBs) of a particular occupation and will include an End Point Assessment.
Apprenticeships and their associated points of entry are referred to by levels:
|Name||Level||Equivalent Educational Level|
|Intermediate||2||5 GCSE passes|
|Advanced||3||2 A level passes|
|Higher||4, 5, 6 and 7||Foundation degree and above|
|Degree||6 and 7||Bachelor's or master's degree|
