This is a two year, earn while you learn apprenticeship programme with an approved employer. It combines on the job training with academic study.
This programme is structured over two year calendar years (September to August inclusive). Off-the-job modules run over six 12 week semesters while on-the-job modules are structured to run over three semesters each with final deliverables submissions to coincide with the end of Semester 3 and Semester 6. Assessment of off-the-job modules comprises a combination of continuous assessment and terminal exams. On-the-job assessment is via an ongoing electronic portfolio of evidence in year 1 and a final project in year 2.
Learners graduating with a 2.2 honours degree at level 8 in any discipline are eligible to apply for this programme. Non-standard applications will be also considered on an individual basis.
