We look forward to offering employers a high quality, work-relevant course, and students a new and practical way of learning.”

The government-backed Degree Apprenticeships integrate a full Honours degree with paid, on-the-job training, and have been hailed as an ‘outstanding opportunity’ for young people by employers including IBM, Accenture and BT.Tech Industry Gold programmes offer an additional level of assurance to both employers and prospective apprentices, as they are accredited by a board of leading organisations for their focus on quality, early productivity for the apprentice, and support for the employer.

Bob Clift, Head of Higher Education on behalf of the Tech Partnership, said: “The Partnership is delighted that BPP University is joining the impressive group of institutions offering Degree Apprenticeships. Employers are excited about this innovative way of recruiting top notch talent, and students are already showing huge enthusiasm for the concept. It is an important way of growing the talent pipeline into technology and improving our national competitiveness.”
