Higher Apprenticeship

The Higher Apprenticeship runs for 4 years and is aimed at those who have an A Level or are working towards one. A Higher Apprenticeship combines work, on-the-job training and formal education with working towards an HNC or HND.

Higher Apprenticeships sit above the Advanced Apprenticeship (equivalent to 2 A-Level passes) and the Intermediate Apprenticeship (worth 5 GCSE passes).
