POWERING A NEW GENERATION
OF DEGREE APPRENTICESHIP CANDIDATES
If you thought studying for an Apprenticeship disqualified you from gaining a degree – you may be surprised by what you’re about to read!
Meet Noah, 20, who, after completing a Level 3 Engineering course at Blackburn College and achieving the equivalent of 3 As at A-Level, was accepted onto a prestigious Apprenticeship programme with engineering giant Rolls-Royce.
Noah, from Clitheroe, said: “I considered applying to university but was attracted to the fact that I could avoid student debt and earn whilst I learn through a Degree Apprenticeship.”
Noah is one of a number of students who have studied a technical course at Blackburn College to gain the necessary experience and skills to be accepted onto a coveted Higher or Degree Apprenticeship.
The former Bowland High School pupil added: “The fact that I can learn from Rolls-Royce experts straight out of college is amazing.”
Blackburn College is not only nurturing Level 3 students to progress to Higher and Degree Apprenticeships, it is blazing its own trail within the field, offering its own university-level Apprenticeships.
Last year, the College became the first in Pennine Lancashire to offer a Lancaster University Degree Apprenticeship, with the launch of the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (CMDA). It now offers a range of Apprenticeships at Levels 4, 5 and 6.
Prospective students are invited to go along to the College’s next Open Event on Wednesday 13th February from 4.30pm-8pm to meet tutors, see world-class facilities and learn about the unrivalled support package on offer
