Many employment sectors are currently facing skills shortages at technician and associate professional levels. Help your company get ahead by filling any skills gaps your company may have. Work-based courses are a great opportunity for both you and your workforce. By taking part in one of our courses, they’ll have increased confidence at applying skills and knowledge, helping your organisation to flourish with an upskilled workforce, particularly if they cascade their new knowledge to other colleagues.  

Your employees will also study primarily in your workplace, so they won’t be spending much time away from work. They’ll be working on projects linked to real-world business issues, so that they can make an impact in your company before they’ve even completed their degree.

You can either send staff onto one of our existing work-based courses, or you may be able work with us to design and deliver a new work-based degree course if you have specific requirements. 

Contact the Aston Professional Engineering Centre for more information. 

We also offer a variety of Degree Apprenticeships, which you can find more information on here.

Due to the success of this programme, we are looking for Chartered Engineers who have extensive experience and are currently employed in the Power Industry to act as Professional Mentors to students studying on this programme. This role would be supported by your employer and would be undertaken alongside your current role. If you or anyone you know is interested, please contact Carol Winder on
