Information for employers

We'll supply the best higher and degree apprentices for your business.

Higher or Degree apprenticeships are an effective way for your business to grow existing or recruit new talent to develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce.

Staffordshire University is a modern, connected University, offering everything that your business and your apprentices need to succeed. Our professional apprenticeships help employers to deliver a high quality learning experience for new and existing employees.

Why use Staffordshire University?

We offer complete employer support to help you get the most out of Higher and Degree Apprenticeships from a business perspective. You'll receive a dedicated account manager who will have expertise in developing recruitment and training strategies and can offer advice on how to make the most out of the Apprenticeship Levy and your funds. They will also be your go-to when it comes to the compliance and paperwork that goes hand-in-hand with apprentice employees. 

As an employer, you will get access to webinars, online tools and marketing support to help drive internal and external recruitment, as well as networking opportunities with academics who are experienced and connected within their fields of work.

Why apprenticeships over traditional recruitment?

There are plenty of myths surrounding apprenticeships, from how the courses are structured and the talent available, to the costs involved.

In reality, apprentice schemes help you to attract the best candidates, increase employee satisfaction and diversity, and improve your business productivity while reducing staff turnover.

Futureproof your workforce

We will help you to identify and fill in the gaps in your workforce, allowing you to remain competitive in growing industries. Developing staff through apprenticeships means you are essentially shaping your own workforce, growing strengths where you need them.

Reduce recruitment costs

Apprenticeships empower your employees to carry out their roles at a higher, more skilled level and create a pool of skilled employees who can be promoted into senior roles on completion of their apprenticeship – meaning a reduction in the need to externally recruit new talent or retrain.
