The University’s Modern Apprentice Programme launched in 2017 and has already seen over 70 apprentices take part to date.

Apprentices can strengthen succession planning and allow individuals to develop the specific skills they need to build their careers and meet your team’s needs. It also provides mentoring and development opportunities to existing staff.
