We are pleased to be hosting The Times Guide to Higher & Degree Apprenticeships, originally published in ‘The Times Guide to Elite Apprenticeships’ supplement in The Times on Wednesday, January 27th.
The guide features the 30 organisations that recruited the largest number of sixth form school-leavers in 2015 and offer prestigious training programmes which provide an alternative to going to university.
The BBC offers the highest salaries to its higher and degree apprenticeships, up to £23,000 pa, whilst Civil Service takes on the highest number with 564 Higher Apprenticeships on offer.
To compile the guide, High Fliers Research contacted more than 200 employers of school leavers, graduates and young professionals to research how many Higher Apprentices or Degree Apprentices each organisation recruited in 2015, along with the number of places available on employers’ sponsored degree courses and other comparable 18+ school-leaver training schemes.
The research shows that the UK’s leading employers of Higher or Degree Apprentices together recruited more than 2,800 sixth form school-leavers for programmes that lead to level 4 qualifications or above, the equivalent of a foundation or undergraduate degree.
