Degrees at Work

Invest in your talent
We partner with employers to develop innovative work-based learning for the skills of their workforce via distance learning and degree apprenticeships.

Realising ambitions together

Here at ARU we understand evolving workforces and the skills shortages impacting organisational performance today.

That’s why, in partnership with professional bodies and some of the biggest names in industry and public services, we’re working at the very forefront of degree apprenticeships – a bold new approach to developing talent in your organisation.

Degrees at Work – a dedicated team to support you

Our Degrees at Work team provides expert advice on how to use degree apprenticeships to your best advantage.

With many years of combined experience, our team will guide you and support you at every stage of the process of setting up and implementing an apprenticeship programme. Our support ranges from account management to recruitment, funding, reporting and compliance.

Innovation and collaboration

Innovation in work based learning is at the heart of what we do here at ARU.

Where a skills gap exists we will work with employers to develop a solution to help meet that need. An example of this is our work in partnership with the Wellcome Sanger Institute in developing the UK’s first Data Science Degree Apprenticeship for the bioinformatics profession.
