Degree Aprenticeship VS UniWatch
Which is better? Ideally I want to go into the field of criminal psychology/criminal sector/psychology but also would also look at going into accounting (dependant on my maths grade). Any help would be great!!
Do you have any advice for this question?
With Psychology, that's still very much a degree based profession that requires university study, usually to postgraduate level. While there's likely to be in the future, there isn't currently the option to become a psychologist through an apprenticeship. Whatever field you're considering in psychology, you'll need to do a degree that's recognised by the British Psychological Society, they list approved courses on their website as well as some useful information about working in the sector
With accounting that's a different story as apprenticeships are very common in this industry and degree apprenticeships are available so it's a realistic option. Remember that to qualify for a degree apprenticeship you'll need to meet the requirements for the degree as you would if you were going to university. A good way to qualify for this would be to do an advanced apprenticeship in accounting. This would give you the qualification you need to be eligible for the degree and plenty of work experience in the industry. To look at what's out there, the Gov.uk Find an Apprenticeship page is a good place to start
Hope this helps - Mark
