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 thing’s ‘apprenticeship’. As part of the Business Engagement, Careers and Employability team, it is our mission to promote the vast opportunities for work-based learning within both our local community and with our partners across the country. 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.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the Apprenticeship Hub via apprenticeships@uos.ac.uk. We will endeavour to respond to you as soon as possible. 

The Apprenticeship Hub team is based in the Atrium Building. (University of Suffolk - Atrium Building, Ipswich, IP4 1LQ)
