How to apply
Applicants must be employed, in an appropriate role and at an appropriate level, in a levy-paying institution. Individual employers will set the select criteria for their apprenticeships. Applications for this course should be made via your line manager in the first instance. Employers should contact the Lifelong Learning Centre for more information.
Apprentices must meet the eligibility criteria specified in the EFSA funding rules. The minimum duration of each apprenticeship is based on the apprentice working 30 hours a week or more, including any off-the-job training they undertake. If the apprentice works fewer than 30 hours a week it may be possible to extend the minimum duration (pro rata) to take account of this. This will need to be done in consultation with the University, the employer and the applicant.
The selection process will include an interview with your employer and the Lifelong Learning Centre to assess suitability.
