Develop your workforce with an apprenticeship
Apprenticeships are employment-based training programmes designed to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours needed for the workplace.
We can work with your organisation to shape training around your business needs, so you can minimise skills shortages and access new talent with a significantly reduced recruitment cost.
National Apprenticeship Service studies with employers have found that employing apprentices lowers staff turnover, improves staff satisfaction, increases productivity and service quality.

How apprenticeships work
University of Leeds apprentices learn in a research environment, taught by academic specialists. Find out what to expect from our programmes.
Angie Arnott, Chartered Manager Degree apprenticeship
"I’ve been able to apply so many things I’ve learned to my job – it’s really changed my heart and mind."
Mark Llelwellyn, Executive Leader apprenticeship
"The course content is really interesting and useful. Everything is relevant to my job and the business, for example digital transformation, innovation, leadership skills and finance."
In compliance with the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) apprenticeship funding rules, we have published the University of Leeds rationale for subcontracting within apprenticeship programmes (PDF).
