Is A Degree Apprenticeship Right For You?

From short-term targeted placements to Master’s Degree-level courses, apprenticeship providers are equipped to help people who are willing and able to jump-start their careers or make a significant change to their lives.

Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to develop skills, build up work experience and earn whilst you learn, and degree apprenticeships not only provide you with a higher education qualification at the end but also give you between three and six years of career experience.

If all of this sounds appealing and you are willing to make a serious commitment, then a degree apprenticeship is perfect for you and there are plenty of different options available.

However, if you are on the fence, here are some ways to know if a degree apprenticeship is right for you.

If You Want More Hands-On Learning

Higher education is perfectly suited for some people who tend to learn in a more 

academically-minded fashion, but it is far from perfect for everyone. However, a degree apprenticeship allows for hands-on practical work experience to build towards a degree-level qualification.

A lot of people prefer to learn by doing and this makes a degree apprenticeship the perfect qualification for them, setting them up for a long and fruitful career.

If You Are Ready To Hit The Ground Running

Apprenticeships of all types require people to learn and adapt quickly, but this also helps people 

to learn new skills quickly and build up a repertoire of degree-level knowledge alongside work experience and soft skills.

Compared to a conventional degree, where you have to learn both separately, it can be a real benefit.

If You Are Ready To Juggle Knowledge And Experience

With a degree apprenticeship, 20 per cent of your working time is spent in a classroom learning the academic part of your course, and alongside coursework, this means there are a lot of different plates spinning during the lifetime of the course.

However, for the people for whom this type of learning experience suits, it can be a brilliant way to learn.
