Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes which involve on-the-job training to develop relevant skills and a recognised qualification whilst earning.
Our higher and degree apprenticeships are an alternative to traditional degrees which combine paid work with studying for a work-based academic or vocational high-level qualification. They are developed collaboratively by employers, universities, and professional bodies to ensure their content meets the specific needs of an industry.
The University of Lincoln delivers a range of higher and degree apprenticeships in food manufacturing, business management, and engineering. These work-based programmes involve on-the-job training, enabling students to develop sector-relevant skills and to achieve a recognised qualification while earning.
Based at the University’s Holbeach Campus, the National Centre for Food Manufacturing (NCFM) offers comprehensive work-based training schemes for those who wish to develop a career in the food manufacturing industry. The programmes combine on-the-job learning and part-time study, with delivery consisting of attended learning through block-release and distance-learning study.
Lincoln International Business School works with employers to provide employees with the opportunity to study for a degree while gaining hands-on experience and a professional pathway for future development through a Chartered Management Degree Apprenticeship (CMDA) and The Senior Leader Master’s Degree Apprenticeship (SLMDA).
The apprenticeship provision within Lincoln’s School of Engineering reflects and draws upon our experience and knowledge of industries we collaborate with in both our teaching and research activities. Our programmes draw on the workplace practices and experiences of a modern industrial workplace.
