Higher education apprenticeships

Higher education apprenticeships provide an opportunity for apprentices to combine their experience 'on-the-job' with 'off-the-job' training, and gain associated qualifications. Our resources are designed to provide members with more information and guidance about higher education apprenticeships, focusing on oversight and quality and standards.

Higher Education Apprenticeships Toolkit


The Higher Education Apprenticeships Toolkit is aimed at supporting higher education, training and learning providers who are developing and/or delivering apprenticeships involving higher education in the UK. The Toolkit does not form part of any regulatory requirements/arrangements in the UK and is designed as a guidance document to be used as:

  • a training tool to enhance practice and/or for staff development
  • a reference point while completing specific tasks
  • a source of further information.

You can access the Toolkit on the Membership Resources site, as well as a variety of other practical materials and case studies to support you in the design and delivery of apprenticeships.

Work-based learning

Providers work closely with organisations outside the sector to give students authentic, structured opportunities for learning in a workplace setting. Our resources are designed to raise challenges and identify opportunities associated with the delivery of work-based learning, sharing the experiences of members and experts from across the sector.

Case studies, policy updates and event summaries


On our Membership Resources site you'll find a range of case studies, policy updates and summaries of our events related to work-based learning and areas such as embedding professional practice and creating a work-based learning framework to support productivity.

Collaborative Enhancement Projects

We are supporting a number of Collaborative Enhancement Projects which are developing further insights and outputs for members related to apprenticeships.

PSRB Fourm

Our PSRB Forums support regular engagement between professional, statutory and regulatory bodies (PSRBs) and our members. They discuss current topics and develop understanding of the different perspectives and requirements for students to complete accredited courses and move into the professions.
