Higher Apprenticeships

Higher Apprenticeships (Level 4) can be an NVQ Level 4 or Higher National Diploma (HND). They can also be a foundation degree. Some offer the opportunity to progress to postgraduate degree level (Level 7). 

A Higher Apprenticeship can take up to five years to complete. Many Higher Apprenticeships have a permanent job waiting for you at the end. If the company doesn’t recruit you, you will still be a very employable candidate.  

What qualifications do I need to apply for a Higher Apprenticeship? 

Entry requirements for a higher apprenticeship include at least five GCSEs grades A* – C, including English and maths. This is 9 – 4 on the new grading system.

Employers may also ask for Level 3 qualifications, including A Levels, NVQs, or a BTEC. Some employers expect you to have studied subjects relevant to the apprenticeship. This could include science or engineering. 

I have completed a Higher Apprenticeship. What’s next?

After a Higher Apprenticeship in England, you can move onto a Degree Apprenticeship, or if you are feeling ready you can begin full time work. Having completed a Higher Apprenticeship you will have a greater range of jobs available to you, than if you had only completed an Intermediate Apprenticeship.
