Apprenticeships at London Met

London Metropolitan University and its predecessor institutions have a proud history of providing vocational education spanning more than a century.

We have strong continuing relationships with the widest range of professional bodies.

Having delivered level 3 apprenticeships since 2015, the University is now also at the forefront of helping to introduce the new Higher Level and Degree Apprenticeships.

We have gained recent recognition for the quality of our programmes and as the new funding arrangements and standards rapidly emerge, the University is developing a responsive apprenticeship portfolio in disciplinary areas where we have existing strengths. These include: 

  • community and voluntary sector
  • digital media and computing
  • health and social care
  • early childhood and education
  • leadership and management
  • policing
  • procurement and supply management
  • science and lab work
  • social work

Latest apprenticeship updates

The new Register of Approved Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP)

In March 2017, the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) unveiled the new Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (the RoATP). London Met is one of a number of successful register applicants that have been awarded ‘Main Provider’ status. As a main provider, London Met can be selected by levy paying employers to deliver apprenticeship training, or be selected by another main provider to work as a subcontractor. Apprenticeships and Skills Minister Robert Halfon said: “Our new register of apprenticeship providers will mean that only organisations that have passed our quality assurance can deliver apprenticeships. We are giving employers the confidence to do business with high quality training providers, and making sure that individuals can benefit from gold-standard routes as they climb the ladder of opportunity.”
