Why do a higher and degree apprenticeship?

Higher or degree apprenticeships allow you to earn while you learn and progress into highly skilled careers. Sheffield Hallam's National Centre of Excellence for Degree Apprenticeships is the UK's leading provider, and Sheffield is a diverse, creative and enterprising city to train in. In 2022, our courses were rated 'good' by Ofsted.

Some quick stats

After finishing, 77% of apprentices stay with the same employer, 46% received a pay rise, and 36% reported getting a promotion (source: gov.uk). And your lifetime earning potential increases by around £150,000 (source: University Education).

You'll benefit from

  • applying your learning to real-world projects in the workplace
  • your employer paying your course fees, often using government funding
  • a clear pathway to achieving your ambitions in the workplace
  • a salary and guaranteed job while you study
  • the potential to achieve graduate and postgraduate qualifications
  • potential opportunities to progress within your job upon completion 
  • training and networking with other apprentices at Hallam
  • the chance to gain professional accreditation and membership
