How is the programme delivered?
Study includes standard classroom sessions with other apprentices taught by our leading academics and industry experts, as well as via online learning modules, directed learning and work-based projects.
We work with employers to ensure the learning experience of apprentices develops them into the graduates industry need. We do this through initial programme design and regular update meetings to ensure that apprentices meet all of the required outcomes over 4 year programme.
We will help devise projects and identify desired outcomes for the mutal benefit of the individual and business, while meeting the outcomes of the apprenticeship framework.
Ear apprentice has a dedicated academic supervisor and we arrange regular supervisiory meetings, either on-site of via conference call on Skype.
