Degrees at Work

Degrees at Work

We create and deliver innovative work-based learning.

Through Degrees at Work we take a demand-led and practical approach to staff training and development.

THE Award Winner - Entrepreneurial University of the Year

At Anglia Ruskin University we realise ambitions together.

We listen to your requirements and work with you to create practical, business-focussed and academically credible courses that benefit your organisation and your employees, and improve performance.

And we listen to your people. Work-based studying differs from traditional higher-level education in that it actively uses the workplace as a rich learning environment. With our courses, your people develop skills, knowledge and understanding through their day-to-day activities and then apply this learning to specific individual, team and organisational objectives for improved results.

As specialists in online learning we’re also able to bring together geographically dispersed employees through our University’s Virtual Learning Environment, enabling us to work with a broad range of different brands, from local enterprises to multinationals.

What are the benefits of a work-based course?

Work-based degrees are becoming increasingly important to employees and employers alike.

For the employer, there is the benefit of fresh thinking applied to current issues, supervised in-company research, analysis and recommendations for improvement. Staff attraction, engagement and retention increases, as does quality of output.

For the employee, there is the opportunity to study for a relevant degree qualification while working full-time, often with employer sponsorship.

How we create your programme

  1. We can start with a blank canvas and create a qualification that meets your unique requirements, fits your budget and exceeds your expectations.
  2. We're also expert in forging collaborative partnerships and, through recognition of what you already provide, we can align your training with our existing qualifications to create a new programme that staff can follow to achieve a university award.
  3. We offer an extensive range of options to meet a wide range of levels and sectors, including short courses, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, degree apprenticeships and tailored courses.

In your workplace, the need for learning never stops. Changes in your marketplace and the need for career progression all contribute to the requirement for organisations to offer their people tailored learning packages. Partner with Degrees at Work and you’ll find work-based learning that specifically meets the needs of your organisation and your employees.

We wanted to create a world class sales course and Anglia Ruskin was really open to exploring what this qualification could be.
