A higher apprenticeship is a great way to get into higher education while still working in the industry and developing your skills and knowledge.

Much like our Level 2 or 3 apprenticeships, our higher apprenticeships will give you the skills you need to excel in your chosen field while providing real world work experience. If you have A levels, a Level 3 vocational course or apprenticeship qualifications you may be considered for a higher apprenticeship.

We currently offer the following higher apprenticeships at Redcar & Cleveland College:

  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Care Leadership and Management
  • Higher Engineering
  • Management and Leadership

Key facts about higher apprenticeships:

  • You’ll spend most of the week at work (a minimum of 30 hours) developing your skills and competency, you will also be assessed at work
  • You’ll also spend time attending college or training at work
  • Over the past three years, 56,200 people have started a higher or degree apprenticeship
  • The government has pledged to create 3 million apprenticeships across all levels by 2020**
  • After completing your apprenticeship, 77% of apprentices stay with the same employer, 46% received a pay rise, and 36% reported getting a promotion**
