Funding will expand University's health-based degree apprenticeships

Evesham Editorial 18th Jan, 2024   0

THE University of Worcester has been awarded £493,000 to boost its degree apprenticeships offering.

The Office for Students (OfS) funding will allow the University to increase opportunities for people to study for a level six apprenticeship.

Students will then be able to graduate to success in their chosen health, adult social care or allied health career.

Working alongside employers, including the NHS, the University has embraced nursing and allied health apprenticeships.

Worcester’s apprenticeship courses are enabling individuals to overcome economic and social barriers to secure entry into health care professions. In addition the courses meet local, regional, and national employer needs.

Professor David Green CBE DL, the University’s Vice Chancellor and Chief Executive said:




“We are delighted to have been awarded this funding from the OfS to further develop our level 6 degree apprenticeships in health.

“These University degree apprenticeships will increasingly form a vital component of the education and training of the nation’s health workforce.


“We hope to encourage even more people to make the best of their own potential and start their journey to a rewarding and truly purposeful career.”
