The University of Northampton apprenticeships embrace the growing development for vocational higher education in England by offering higher and degree apprenticeships specifically designed by industry to respond to high level skills gaps. They bring together the very best in higher and vocational education.

COVID-19 update

At this uncertain time, we want to reassure you that we are committed to supporting our apprentices and employers. As a University, we are committed to ensuring a no detriment approach to student outcomes in light of the Covid-19 crisis. We aim to be as flexible and supportive as possible. The University Emergency Regulations have been written with this principle in mind and are available here for your information.

Keeping competitive

In order to remain competitive and relevant in an evolving educational environment, we are providing new interactive learning practices and a transformational student experience.

Our modules and programmes have been re-designed in order to deliver a student-centred experience through active blended learning (ABL). This is our standard approach to learning and teaching.

Leading the way in adding value

We may be one of the youngest universities in the UK but we are already leading the way in adding value to society, which we call 'social impact'. Social Impact is embedded in our institution-wide strategy, 'Transforming Lives + Inspiring Change'.

We work hard to ensure that through socially innovative activities and initiatives we have a positive effect on the communities that we serve locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.

Student centred learning

These approaches align perfectly with Apprenticeship methodology, enabling teaching through student-centred activities that support the development of subject knowledge and understanding, independent learning, and digital fluency.

Our face-to-face teaching is facilitated in a practical and collaborative manner, linked to learning activity outside the classroom. Opportunities are provided for students to develop autonomy, Changemaker attributes and employability skills.

The University of Northampton takes gold...

We have also been given the Gold Award in the Government's Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) – the highest rating possible which places us among the elite of the UK's higher education institutions.
