What is an apprenticeship?
It`s a genuine job, with training, meaning you can earn while you learn and gain the necessary skills and professional competencies in your chosen career.
There are several benefits to becoming an apprentice, such as...
Coventry's National Student Survey scores
- 91% of students are happy with the quality of their course (NSS 2016)

- 91% of students agreed staff made the subject interesting (NSS 2016)
Each Apprenticeship programme is designed in partnership with the employer, so that it reflects their organisation’s culture and values. Learning is by a blend of face-to-face, online and self-directed study, and individual learning styles and needs are catered for. Tutors understand the challenges of combining study with work, and are available out of hours to provide support if necessary. One-to-one coaching sessions are an important feature of the programme, keeping students motivated and helping them to stay on track. Learning is assessed by a range of different methods. These are based on learners’ own work situation and include written reports, presentations and individual reflections/summaries, among other assessment tools.
The delivery schedule is planned with your business in mind and can include weekly, bi-weekly or block release learning. Programmes are delivered on a modular basis, and can start at any time of the year.
The best of both worlds
