Can I do an apprenticeship with a Certificate of Higher Education? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I've seen that most apprenticeships require you not to have a Level 4 qualification when applying. I have a Cert.He from completing my first year of uni, which is Level 4, so it doesn't appear that I can apply for pretty much any Level 3/4 apprenticeship. But what about Level 5 or 6? What about Degree Apprenticeships?

    It's like I'm strangely overqualified

    The short answer is yes you cna do an apprenticeshup with a Cert HE.

    Heres a useful site to give you an idea of Higher Apprenticsehips

    Was looking at a site last night which specifically mentioned Cert Ed. Will post if I find it.

    Some companies don't rely on the government funding for their apprenticeships, especially if they're larger programs. It may be worth looking at bigger companies as they may be able to offer you an apprentice even though you have a higher qualification already.

    As you haven't completed a degree, you will still be able to do most degree apprenticeships, and some companies would still allow you to do an advanced apprenticeship.
