Leeds College of Building Showcases Higher-Level Training for National Apprenticeship Week 2023
Higher and degree apprenticeships are the focus for Leeds College of Building as the country marks National Apprenticeship Week 2023 (#NAW2023).
By: Leeds College of Building
In recognition of a rapidly expanding higher education offer, Leeds College of Building is showcasing its range of higher and degree apprenticeships at the Leeds Apprenticeship Recruitment Fair, kicking off #NAW2023 on Monday 6th February (2 - 8 pm).
Over the last five years, higher-level courses have grown to represent a significant proportion of the College's provision. Around 80% of delivery in the new Leeds College of Building University Centre (UC) now covers Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeships, Higher, and Degree Apprenticeships.
The College launched Level 6 courses, including a BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering Site Management Degree Apprenticeship in partnership with Leeds Beckett University. Other programmes include a Degree Apprenticeship in Construction Quantity Surveying thanks to a new partnership with London South Bank University (LSBU).
Higher-level apprenticeships offer hands-on learning with exceptional employers, smaller class sizes with experienced tutors, and are a cost-effective alternative route to a degree. Chris Tunningley, Leeds College of Building Assistant Principal for Adult Learning and Higher Education, said:
"With Level 6 now added to our provision, we can offer a fantastic progression route for full-time students from foundation skills right through to degree-level training. Our degree apprentices have grown from a cohort of 10 in the 2021/22 academic year to 92 in 2022/2023. This expansion is a testament to our outstanding teaching and assessment team and a significant milestone for the College. We hope this inspires even more students of all levels to realise their potential."
Find out more about Apprenticeships at the next Leeds College of Building Open Night on Thursday 23rd February (5 - 7 pm) at the North Street Campus. Guests can register their planned attendance on the Leeds College of Building website:
