BPP Professional Education has been delivering professional qualifications for 40 years. This wealth of training and education expertise has been used to develop apprenticeship programmes in accountancy, business, finance and law.

We create and deliver bespoke training programmes for businesses to recruit and train their workforce of the future.

NEW Apprenticeships Standards: Trailblazers

The coming years will see the move to a new set of world class Apprenticeship Standards; Created by employer groups known as 'Trailblazers', they will change apprenticeships as we know them.

At BPP, we've been involved in multiple Trailblazer groups and amongst the first training providers to deliver a selection of the new standards. We continue to be involved in many more.

Professional qualifications and progression

Aligned to industry recognised professional qualifications our apprenticeships have clear progression paths to progress to full professional or postgraduate qualifications. They also encompass work-based qualifications to develop and grow business acumen and soft skills. No other provider has the breadth of coverage of qualifications and degree level programmes.

NEW Degree Apprenticeships

Degree Apprenticeships are the latest development in the sector. These brand new employer-led frameworks are the first government approved apprenticeships that incorporate a degree within the apprenticeship standards. Find out more about BPP Degree Apprenticeships

Training costs - for existing apprenticeship frameworks

Apprenticeship training costs are fully or part-funded by the government depending on the age of the apprentice and level of programme. Each programme is subject to training costs and registration with the relevant professional body

  • Age 16-18: 100% government funded
  • Age 19+: Part government funded and an employer contribution will be required
We find our apprentices to be on a par with our graduates, their willingness to learn and lack of pre-conceptions means they quickly adapt.”
