Andrew Scott, Programme Leader for Degree Apprenticeships at Grŵp Llandrillo Menai, said: “Jamie demonstrated an excellent work ethic in all of his studies at the college, his achievements are a credit to his hard work, well done Jamie! We really look forward to seeing where Jamie’s career takes him next”.
Degree Apprenticeships provide an alternative route to traditional higher education. Combining full-time work with part-time university study. So, employees can gain a degree whilst remaining in the workplace and upskilling.
All Degree Apprenticeship programmes have been designed with work-based learning in mind and with input from employers, so that apprentices learn the skills and knowledge they need to apply in the workplace.
They are fully-funded by Welsh Government and so there is no cost to the employer or apprentice.
