Apprenticeships at Aston

Education is nothing without experience. We’ve championed this ethos since 1895 when we began working with business and industry to nurture students into young professionals with skills as well as knowledge.

The original university for degree apprenticeships

We led the way with our degree apprenticeships offer and Aston became the first University in the UK to have degree apprentice alumni, who graduated in July 2017.

Delivering high achievers

Our apprenticeships deliver excellent outcomes for both apprentices and their employers. 90 per cent of our apprentices have achieved a first class or 2.1 degree showing apprenticeships really do work.

Apprenticeships with impact

We deliver practical degree apprenticeships tailored to business needs that are developed with industry and approved by professional bodies. Our curriculum focuses on the transformational things apprentices can do for industry.

Support from the start

You’ll be assigned a dedicated Service Delivery Manager who will work in close partnership with you to meet your needs and respond to emerging trends in your sector. From the initial point of contact, they’ll support you with everything you need to deliver degree apprenticeships successfully in your organisation.

We keep in touch

On top of regular meetings with your dedicated Service Delivery Manager you will receive regular updates from our reporting dashboard updating you on the progress of your apprentices, along with feedback from skills coaches and lecturers. You’ll also receive an early warning if an apprentice's progress dips below expectations.

Industry focused

Business and industry are our heritage. We provide business growth and improvement services to many organisations each year, from innovative regional SMEs to major global players. Our research is critical to their success.
