Higher Apprenticeships and Degree Apprenticeships (HADA)

University of Derby is one of a handful of learning providers selected to develop Higher Apprenticeship frameworks appropriate for specific sectors.

We'd like to work with employers, colleges and training providers to develop our framework across different sectors. You would need to have a group of people willing and able to learn at this level.

If you are interested in developing your staff with a Higher Apprenticeship or Degree Apprenticeship, we would like to hear from you.
