Plymouth launches new employer-led Degree Apprenticeships
Plymouth has become the latest university to join a government initiative that brings together higher education and apprenticeships to offer businesses a new way to train and retain staff.
Like most apprenticeships, students will earn a salary, and the tuition fee is paid by the government and their employer. The first degree to be approved was a CMI Chartered Manager programme, which is run by the Plymouth Business School and focuses upon team leadership, project management, business finance, sales and marketing.
The second was a four year Digital and Technology Solutions degree, which encompasses cyber security, IT consultancy, software engineering and network engineering.
This will be delivered by the School of Computing, Electronics and Mathematics, in partnership with City College Plymouth, Petroc, Bridgewater College and South Devon College.
