The Open University is based in Milton Keynes and a leading provider of qualifications delivered online, although you might know us more for our collaboration with the BBC on award winning programmes like Blue Planet II.
But did you know we also do apprenticeships? Here’s a selection of our higher and degree apprenticeships:
- Chartered Management Degree Apprenticeship: teaches management skills, core competences and desired behaviours for future leaders
- Digital & Technology Solutions Professional Degree Apprenticeship: helps develop software developers, business analysts and IT project mangers
- Healthcare Assistant Practitioner Higher Apprenticeship: equips apprentices with the skills to work with healthcare professionals
- Registered Nurse Degree Apprenticeship: qualify as either an adult or mental health nurse.
So by doing a degree apprenticeship, you can work and get a degree without getting into debt and, take home a salary.
And for employers, why should your organisation use the OU for apprenticeships? We have been educating people in the workplace for nearly 50 years, have worked with employers across all sectors including Unilever, the NHS, and KPMG, and are trusted advisers on apprenticeships. Your organisation will benefit immediately as your apprentices fit study around their jobs, there is minimum extraction from the workplace and they can apply their learning immediately.
