Unlock Greatness. Transform Higher Education. Join the UA92 Team

UA92 is a new higher education institution that's daring to be different. Open to students in 2019, we are looking to build a “best in class” team of expert educators and experienced professionals, with the ability to develop UA92 from the ground up and drive this new venture forwards at pace, establishing it quickly as a sector leader.

At UA92, you will have the opportunity to make an impact in an organisation where change is constant, challenging convention is embraced and the vision is big! 

If you’re a highly skilled, forward-thinking team player with an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for social mobility through life-transforming, career-making higher education, then we’re keen to hear from you! 


We are currently looking to recruit a Degree Apprenticeships Development Manager.  The successful applicant will be a self-starter, a genuine team player and someone with the drive, determination and resilience needed to help us to build this revolutionary new organisation from the ground up; an individual who essentially embodies the ethos and core principles of UA92 (which apply to our employees as much as they do to our students).

Reporting to the Head of Student Registry and Quality you will:

  • Lead in the development of the UA92 Degree Apprenticeship offer.

  • Work closely with the Academic team to ensure that Degree Apprenticeship programmes meet the published Apprenticeship Standards at levels 4-7.

  • Work closely with the External Affairs team to develop and maintain partnerships with employers and build a sustainable Degree Apprenticeship programme.

  • Maintain up to date knowledge and understanding of Government policies relating to Apprenticeships.


  • As Degree Apprentice Lead you will provide leadership and direction within the programmes of Apprenticeships to deliver on UA92’s Learning and Business objectives and strategy.

  • An ability to act as the main point of contact for UA92 in relation to the ongoing education process, contract management and audit and compliance responsibilities

  • Effective external liaison skills to ensure statutory policies and procedures are met in relation to apprentices both on-programme and during End Point Assessment.
