Spotlight on apprenticeships

Apprentice

Our approach to apprenticeships

Vocational education is a key part of providing skills for industry, and driving innovation and economic growth. We are determined to keep on developing this vital strand of education.

Professor Sir Keith Burnett

The University of Sheffield is a champion of apprenticeships.

Apprenticeships offer an alternative route to education through on-the-job skills, experience and qualifications.

For employers, apprenticeships can provide the talent and skills they need for their organisation to succeed.
