Apprenticeships at Kent explained for employers and students.

About Higher and Degree Level Apprenticeships

Higher and degree apprenticeships are a partnership between the University and the employer. Apprentices are employed and paired  with experienced staff in order to learn relevant skills. Tailored university programmes equip apprentices with the most appropriate theoretical and practical knowledge.

Experienced provider

The University of Kent has worked in partnership with leading employers to deliver apprenticeships since 2011.

We work with a mixture of SMEs and large companies from a range of areas – business and administration, construction, engineering and manufacturing, health and science.  

The apprenticeship levy

Since May 2017, larger employers have been required by the government to contribute to an apprenticeship training levy, with the government topping up funds by 10%.  And, for smaller employers, the government pays up to 100% (if not then typically 95%) of apprenticeship training costs.

Until 31st January 2021 all companies will receive a bonus sum for each apprentice they take on. If you hire an apprentice aged 16-24 you will receive £2,000 and £1,500 for apprentices over the age of 25.
