The Apprenticeship Hub

The Apprenticeship Hub comprises a team of business support staff who are on-hand to assist employers, apprentices and the general public with all things apprenticeship.

We strive to spread the word about the many benefits of apprenticeship programmes in the Higher Education sector and will continue to cheerlead the opportunities that our diverse connections have supported us to achieve, in addition to the brilliant achievements of our apprentices.
