Study for a higher education qualification while you work with one of our work-based learning programmes.

At Leeds Trinity University, we offer a range of work-based programmes designed to meet the needs of both students and employers - these include Professional Practice (Level  Top-Up) degrees, and higher and degree-level apprenticeships.

These courses are specifically designed to fit alongside your work and other commitments and offer an alternative route to studying for a degree. You’ll work towards a qualification while being employed or volunteering in a relevant job role, providing the opportunity for both personal and organisational development.

Through our work-based learning qualifications, you’ll gain practical experience and apply the knowledge you’ll learn at Leeds Trinity directly in your job. By putting theory into practice, you’ll develop improved awareness, recognising when best to implement new skills and techniques, forming a deeper understanding of how and why they work.
