What are the benefits to your business?
We make it easy
"There is no doubt that Lineal has had a return on investment from the Degree Apprenticeship.
The highly skilled training that our apprentice has received has allowed us to improve our offer at Lineal. This has resulted in the introduction of a Cyber Security division which is of great benefit to our customers."
Employees will be expected to spend at least 20 per cent of their contracted working hours in training or approximately 12 hours per week. Depending on the apprenticeship programme, this could be in the form of day release for attendance at University, or time to study online.
Higher and degree apprenticeships in practice
Who are they for?
Both current employees, including senior managers and newly recruited employees can study for a higher apprenticeship or work-based degree qualifications. The knowledge they gain can be directly applied to the workplace and will quickly grow the skillset within your organisation.
How does the training work?
Employees study a core set of modules with flexible elements that businesses can choose to meet their ongoing requirements. Your employee is able to work and study giving them the flexibility that they need while still being on the payroll.
