Learning and Development Consultant Master’s Degree Apprenticeship

On this apprenticeship, learners will develop a deeper understanding of the L&D function and context. They will advance their knowledge of professional practice in L&D and learn how to position business cases and grow digital and blended learning solutions. Alongside the apprenticeship training, an internationally recognized Level 7 apprenticeship qualification leading to a master’s degree in L&D will give learners a recognised qualification to position themselves as forward-thinking L&D professionals.


20% of the apprenticeship must be done away from the apprentices’ work to count towards their off-the-job training – this can be a mix of face to face and virtual classrooms, projects, distance learning and meetings with their dedicated Learning and Development Coach.

Our degree apprenticeship placement and online learning model allows you the freedom to pursue your degree and learn on the job by doing while gaining working experience, job skills, competencies, technical know-how and know-who.
