Start
September 2019

Developed in collaboration with industry and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), our apprenticeship seeks to:

  • Ensure accessibility for a range of talent into an exciting profession at a time of great change.
  • Bridge skills gaps by combining vocational skills and cutting-edge knowledge developed in the workplace with academic rigour, and research rich learning and teaching provided by Northumbria University.
  • Embed the broader commercial acumen and digital literacy required to succeed and drive the continual improvement of the profession. 

Apprentices study a diverse curriculum which embeds digital literacy and business and management leading to RICS accreditation and full chartered status within six months of completing their apprenticeship.

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 runs between four - five years and learning will take place on campus. 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.

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.

 

 

Fees and 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.
