Currently Northumbria University are delivering a three year apprenticeship route to Registered Nurse Degree status with Advanced Standing of 50%. Students enter our current 3 year BSc (Hons) nursing programme part way through year 2 and undertake the remaining 18 months via existing year 2 and 3 modules (80 level 5 credits and 120 level 6 credits), which facilitate a workplace based focus via coaching. This will provide an additional pathway to the award and NMC registration, within our current pre-registration nursing framework. 

This degree apprenticeship programme is designed for those wishing to enhance their career prospects through engaging in a work based learning programme providing opportunities to develop your understanding of nursing and capitalise on opportunities for applied learning within the context of your employment.  You will therefore combine academic studies with work based reflection including your own personal practices and behaviours. This is designed to equip you for such influential roles and support your longer-term career aspirations of working as a Registered Nurse with a Degree. 

This Degree Apprenticeship will be delivered in flexible delivery modes.  The delivery model will include a minimum of 20% time away from the workplace developing theory to relate to practice. You will be allocated blocks of placements which will include allocated study time either experiencing face to face teaching or undertaking self-directed study working on online learning materials. This will be outlined in a structured programme plan which will illustrate the learning activities you need to engage with on a weekly basis.  Significant use of technology will also be utilised to allow you to learn wherever you are. This will include use of video, podcast, e-books, and e-journals all available through our E-Learning portal.

This degree apprenticeship is designed in partnership with NHS Foundation Trusts that meets the requirements of the NMC Standards for Pre-registration Nursing Education (2010) and Institute for Apprenticeships. As an apprentice remains in salaried employment for the duration of the apprenticeship you will need to express your interest in the BSc (Hons) Nursing Studies (Registered Nurse Adult) Degree Apprenticeship to your employer.

Applications are via your employer which is normally advertised on the NHS jobs website only.

Department / Nursing, Midwifery and Health

Northumbria's Department of Nursing, Midwifery and Health offers students the opportunity to develop caring careers that can transform the lives of patients, families and communities.

Developed in partnership with NHS Foundation Trusts that meets the requirements of the NMC Standards for Pre-registration Nursing Education (2010) and Institute for Apprenticeships, this innovative programme is designed for those wishing to enhance employees through work based learning.

Taught by experienced academic teams who are registrants with the NMC and are actively engaged with research,  the programme places an emphasis on developing and applying the knowledge, skills and competencies required for a successful career in the areas of Nursing. The course will develop inter-professional skills by learning alongside other professionals and developing valuable skills such as: 

  • Critical thinking
  • Digital literacy
  • Problem solving
  • Self-directed learning

 

How does it work?

In partnership with Northumbria University, your organisation will support the learner at work to achieve their apprenticeship. Whilst studying the apprentice will be required to work full-time (for at least 30 hours a week) in your workplace, and will be supported through learning at work, training and study to achieve the requirements of the apprenticeship standard.

The programme will run for 18 months and delivery will include a minimum of 20% time away from the workplace developing theory to relate to practice. Apprentices will be allocated blocks of placements which will include allocated study time either experiencing face-to-face teaching or undertaking self-directed study working on online learning materials.Timely face-to-face contact will be essential and all learning and teaching materials will be available via a virtual classroom and accessible to all students remotely. Significant use of technology will be utilised including use of video, podcast, e-books, and e-journals all available through our E-Learning portal.

Both apprentice and their line manager will be supported by university staff throughout the programme. This will include access to online support materials for line managers.

During the programme apprentices must successfully complete a degree in Nursing, approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council and then complete an end point assessment. The end point assessment provides the opportunity to showcase evidence of the knowledge, skills and behaviours developed throughout the apprenticeship. Currently the end point assessment comprises a reflective essay and a professional discussion and is to be completed following award of degree and registration with the NMC. The end point assessment will be completed within 3 months of award.

This course is based at our Coach Lane campus, which houses our Clinical Skills Centre – a purpose-built facility that will allow you to develop practical skills and gain valuable experience of adult nursing within a simulated scenario. Our facilities are some of the most advanced in the country and allow us to ensure your learning evolves in-line with the latest developments in the industry.

 

 

Fees and Funding

Apprentice Funding 

An apprentice has full-time employment status rather than student status.  Apprentices do not pay for training costs as these are covered by the employer, however please note apprentices are not entitled to apply for any Student Finance. 

Employers Funding 

Levy Payers:

Since April 2017 all employers with a payroll of over £3 million automatically pay an Apprenticeship Levy. The levy is set at a rate of 0.5% of the total pay bill minus a £15K allowance. Levy payments may be used by the employer within a 24-month period to cover apprenticeship training costs.

As a business paying the levy you will report to HMRC through the PAYE process. Once you have declared the levy to HMRC, you will be able to access funding for apprenticeships through a new apprenticeship service account. The online service account will give you the opportunity to select the apprenticeship programme, choose the training provider and advertise apprenticeship vacancies.

The Government will apply a 10% top‑up to the levy funds on apprenticeship training in England. The top-up monthly amount will be paid at the same time the funds enter your apprenticeship service account. That means for every £1 that enters your account to spend in England on apprenticeship training, you receive £1.10 in return.

Non‑levy Payers:

Employers with a salary bill of under £3m (such as many SMEs) are not subject to the levy and will be able to access funding to cover 90% (and in some cases 100%) of the cost of apprenticeship training and assessment. Northumbria University is pleased to announce that we have been awarded this government funding and so are able to offer places on all our programmes to non-levy paying employers, although these places may be limited in number.
