Higher Apprenticeships

Getting qualified. Whether it’s a degree or professional status, it’s a huge achievement that can completely change your prospects – but it’s not always open to everyone. Some of us can’t afford it. For others, the timing just wasn’t right. But with our Higher Apprenticeship, all you need is at least 80 UCAS points (or predicted) from 2017 onwards; or 200 UCAS points pre-2017, or a year’s work experience, and we can help you earn as you learn – gaining a university-level or professional qualification that kickstarts your momentum.  

Unfortunately, applications for our 2018 programmes are now closed and will reopen in 2019. 
If you think you might be interested in a Foundation Apprenticeship, applications are still open - you can read more here:

Is this right for you?

To be eligible for our Higher Apprenticeship scheme, you’ll need ONE of the following:

  • 80 UCAS points (or predicted) from 2017 onwards
  • 200 UCAS points pre-2017 (check your UCAS points here)
  • A year’s work experience

But it’s not all on paper. Eligibility is about attitude too. Ask yourself if you’re ready to commit to both work and degree-level study.

Hannah, Relationship Management

Before coming to Barclays I had some preconceptions about being in a corporate environment but it’s been completely different to what I’ve imagined. You’ll share the same office as senior management. You’ll build a network of colleagues. And you’ll be part of a large group of apprentices and graduates, all in the same boat as you.

One of my proudest achievements at Barclays was designing and building fraud training for Barclays colleagues. This training has now been launched successfully across Barclays globally. I’m really proud to have worked on this project because I’ve educated thousands of colleagues across Barclays to protect their customers and clients.

Barclays supports me with my study and work by providing me with a dedicated mentor and coach, who will help me with anything that I may need. I also get dedicated study days, where I’m able to go and work on whatever it is that I need to do outside of my day-to-day job.

I’ve had some massive opportunities to influence and make a huge difference to Barclays, even after only being in the bank and on the programme for six months. The belief you get from senior leadership is incredible, and makes me so proud.

I almost didn’t do an apprenticeship. I thought I was too old, that I’d been in work for too long. Initially I was worried about how people would perceive it. But as soon as I got onto the programme and things got started, I saw that it just didn’t matter at all. Barclays see the positive in everyone.

Bethan, Agriculture

The progression I’ve seen in myself has been great. I’ve made contacts within the department. I’ve completed the programme and moved into a permanent role in Compliance. And on top of all that, I’ve graduated as what we call a BA5 manager, which within Barclays is quite a senior role.
