We are working to raise awareness of Higher Education by offering students opportunities to experience universities, apprenticeships and further study events. If you get involved in the project you will be given a handy pack with a few helpful goodies to help you along your way and through the journey we hope to help you achieve your best!
We are keen to make students and parents aware of the fantastic new ‘alternative routes’ into Higher Education such as Higher and even Degree Apprenticeships. For example did you know that you can now achieve a full degree and professional accreditation without the fee’s, whilst working and getting paid?
You can apply for Higher and Degree Apprenticeships through College and University websites and also through the link below.

"“While completing my Level 3 Diploma at Highbury, I did a two-weeks work placement with Midas which resulted in me starting an apprenticeship with them. I have already finished my Level 4 HNC Diploma in the built environment and I am currently working towards my Level 5 HND. I am really enjoying working in the industry and would recommend an apprenticeship to anyone.”
"I had the choice of going to university or becoming an apprentice and I didn’t want to get into lots of debt by going to university. When I found out you could do an apprenticeship in accounting and get experience while learning I was keen to do that. The AAT is a very well-known accreditation so it was a good choice to go with them.”
"Our Highbury Apprentices are fantastic real life examples of what apprenticeships can do for individuals who are willing to work hard, listen, learn and develop their skills within a professional environment.”
"I picked an apprenticeship so I can work and get experience while earning money making a career for myself and still having time with my daughter. I enjoy plenty of things about my apprenticeship. In my workplace, everyone is super friendly and we all get along really well. My tutor always makes lessons fun and interesting, he's great at reassuring us when we have exams and providing a stress free atmosphere about the course. ”
