Our degree apprenticeships can be the start of your exciting new career. They enable you to study for a degree, while also gaining invaluable 'on the job' experience. Studying an apprenticeship means:
- Working full-time with an employer that values staff development
- Gaining in-depth industry-relevant skills and experience
- Support to plan and realise your future careers aspirations
- Achieving nationally recognised degree awards
- Studying at a University that puts you at the heart of provision, providing holistic and effective support
- Government funding for large and small employers
- Work-based learning and tutors with industry experience
This programme combines an academic degree qualification with eligibility to apply for registration as a qualified social worker with Social Work England on successful completion of the full course.
Social Workers improve the lives of a huge range of people. You could work with people with learning difficulties, children and families, older people, people who have problems with drug and alcohol misuse, people who experience mental health problems, or disabled people.
As an apprentice, you will undertake much of your learning ‘on the job’ with the support of your employer and designated mentor. Throughout the programme, we will support you to make links between the taught content of the programme, independent study and the application of your developing knowledge, skills and behaviours in the workplace.
