How to get involved

Our usual offer is an intensive, day-release mode. However, we would also consider concentrated teaching blocks over multiple days subject to numbers, and in cases where geographical limitations make this necessary.

If you are an employer with a distinct cohort, we offer to customise the delivery mode to suit your individual needs. We are interested to hear from employers and providers who would like to join one of our Trailblazer groups, which initially design and develop apprenticeships. Please get in touch if you:

  • would like to become an employer partner of UEL and let us help you find the right apprentices for you
  • are interested in any of the apprenticeship degree courses we are currently running or the new ones we are developing
  • would like to explore creating new apprenticeships and join a Trailblazer group with us
