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 highlevel 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 onthe- 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.
Career progression opportunities will vary depending on students' employers and their contract. A number of higher and degree apprenticeship schemes are designed to develop the leaders and managers of the future. Students can develop the essential skills and knowledge required to become valuable employees, and the experiences students can gain as an apprentice may provide opportunities towards promotions and higher level work and study opportunities.
For more information you can contact our dedicated careers and employability team who can offer guidance and advice. Further information on the opportunities, progression and benefits of higher or degree apprenticeships can be found on the GOV.UK website.
