The degree apprenticeship schemes offer invaluable on-the-job training as well as help from industry professionals and extensive learning support from a mentor and tutor at the university.

Professor Darryll Bravenboer, Director of Apprenticeships at Middlesex University, said: “We are delighted to work in partnership with Aspire London to offer this free education support for people living in London.

“Middlesex University is committed to welcoming students from different backgrounds and we’re determined to help those in London who could be earning a low wage or who may not have benefited from higher education. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain new skills, focus on your strengths and take the first steps on the journey to your future career.”

The next enrolment will be October this year and followed by another one in April 2023. For more information email: AspireLondon@mdx.ac.uk.
