Information for employers

Let ARU Peterborough help you grow and retain specialist talent in your organisation.

Opening in September 2022, our brand-new university brings ARU’s expertise as one of the UK’s leading providers of Degree Apprenticeships, together with our mission to deliver a portfolio of apprenticeship programmes designed to meet the region’s future talent and skills needs.

Our programmes are rooted in the conversations we’ve had with you, the region’s employers. We hear and understand the skills shortages impacting on organisational performance today. Apprenticeships are an effective way to create job growth, capability, continuous learning and to upskill - even more so in a post Covid world. All funded by the Government Apprenticeship Levy, they’re a smart investment - that’s why, to date, over 400 employers have partnered with ARU.

We’re passionate about investing and transforming the future of Peterborough and we want to hear from you if you are too.
