Academic Professional

This apprenticeship is designed to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours of academic professionals working within a university or other scholarly institute engaged in higher education. The programme has been carefully mapped to the government standard and allows flexibility, enabling apprentices to shape the programme around both professional development and the requirements of their role.

The Academic Professional Apprenticeship enables apprentices to specialise in either teaching or research. Those completing the programme will achieve the Academic Professional Apprenticeship (Level 7) and gain a Postgraduate Certificate as well as Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.

The two-year programme will be delivered at our High Wycombe campus on Wednesday afternoons.
