North West Regional College, supported by the Department for the Economy, Ulster University and many leading employers across the North West Region are delighted to announce a major new employment initiative for the North West Region.
The College has secured funding to offer on 6 new Higher Level Apprenticeship (HLA) programmes tailored to industry needs. These programmes will offer employers an opportunity to ‘employ clever’ through an initiative which is aimed at addressing high-level skills shortages which are increasingly evident across the region.
A Higher Level Apprenticeship is a unique work-based programme which enables participants to earn while they learn and gain a nationally recognised professional qualification (Foundation Degree). Successful candidates will be employed in a company relevant to their chosen profession to gain valuable experience over a 2 or 3 year period. This experience will feature a close mentoring relationship and academic support provided by North West Regional College as they progress through the relevant Foundation Degree.
