GCU’s experience in the design and delivery of Work Based Education in partnership with industry for over 20 years is breaking new ground with our partnership with Skills Development Scotland in the creation of fully funded apprenticeship programmes for working people of all ages, spanning a range of disciplines.
Apprentices can achieve degree qualifications between four and as little as two years, depending on experience. We operate a blended approach to teaching and learning with opportunities for employers to contextualise assignments. Work based projects are a key feature of our design which enables apprentices to get university credits for the work they do.
Our Graduate Apprenticeships currently in delivery are:
These two Tech Industry Gold degrees are well established as full-time and part-time programmes at the university and as Graduate Apprenticeships since May 2017.
- Engineering: Design and Manufacturing
- BSc Hons Construction and Built Environment with a focus on Quantity Surveying
We’re proud to announce that we have two more exciting graduate apprenticeship programmes launching in 2018:
- BA Hons Applied Business Management
- BSc Hons Civil Engineering
We would be delighted to discuss the opportunities further with employers and interested employees – please call us to find out more on +44 (0)141 331 3140.
Apprentices bring vibrant energy, a new perspective and fresh approaches to business challenges. We are delighted to be working in partnership with Skills Development Scotland and GCU to deliver the first Graduate Level Apprentices in Scotland.
