Apprenticeships are a core strand of our commitment, as a connected university, to developing the current and future workforce through employer-led, flexible, relevant and digitally supported work-based study routes to gain technical and vocational degree level qualifications.

We are seeking an ambitious individual to lead and manage the delivery of our apprenticeships portfolio. This is an exciting and challenging opportunity for applicants who can bring to this role, significant understanding and experience of successful delivery of higher and degree level apprenticeships.
