Programme Team Leader Apprenticeships
About Arden University
Arden University is an independent higher education provider offering a broad range of degrees, masters and MBA programmes by online distance learning and on campus blended learning. Since 1990, we have been giving learners worldwide an opportunity to further their studies in a way that suits their lifestyle. We are proud that with our help, thousands of students realise their goals and make a difference to the world around them.
We started as a family-owned business in 1990 and we still maintain the same professional and caring approach, with high standards in everything we do. In 2011, we became a subsidiary of the US-based Capella Education Company, but in 2016 our ownership has transferred to Global University Systems, an international network of higher-education institutions, brought together by a shared passion for accessible, industry-relevant qualifications.
In April 2014, after undergoing scrutiny by the QAA, we were awarded Taught Degree-Awarding Powers (TDAP) and began to develop our own degree programmes to meet growing UK and international demand for this affordable, flexible learning model, which we’d previously operated under validation arrangements with University partners. In July 2015 we were granted permission to use University Title and the company was renamed Arden University – the first new UK online distance learning university since the Open University launched in 1971.
Approximately 6,500 students in about 150 countries are studying through Arden University and over 90% of them combine work and study. Our students access our study materials through our interactive ilearn platform. Our tutors and support coordinators help deliver this content in an engaging way through tutorials, online forums, live chats and formative feedback.
