We are currently working with employers to deliver four Degree Apprenticeship Programmes here at UEA.

Senior Leadership Masters Degree Apprenticeship

Organisations can use their Apprenticeship Levy funds to cover the course fees of our Executive MBA if undertaken as part of the Senior Leadership Masters Apprenticeship for those employees they wish to send on the programme. 

Studying for the UEA Executive MBA fulfils part of the requirements of the new Senior Leader Master’s Degree Apprenticeship developed by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) with leading employers. Students will complete the Apprenticeship programme, qualify with an MBA and have the option to achieve further professional recognition as a Chartered Manager or Chartered Fellow of the CMI.

Occupational Therapy Higher Apprenticeship

As a qualified Occupational Therapist (OT), you’ll need to work in close collaboration with other healthcare professionals, which is why our programme has a strong inter-professional focus, embodying the principles that facilitate effective teamwork. You’ll develop a professional identity of your own, while gaining a greater awareness of the roles and responsibilities of all partners in health and social care. Throughout the course you’ll share modules with physiotherapy and speech and language therapy students. And you’ll take part in small teaching groups, allowing you to get involved with a close-knit student body and supportive learning culture.

We are looking to work with more employers and organisations to form new cohorts for these courses, and also to create new programmes, tailored to meet their individual organisation's needs, please get in touch to discuss working together on a Degree Apprenticeship programme.
