Online and On Campus Apprenticeships

Investment in staff training is key for any successful organisation and apprenticeships offer a great opportunity to upskill your workforce.

Here at Gloucestershire College, we aim to be as flexible as possible and offer solutions that work for both employers and apprentices. In partnership with Mindful Education, we are proud to offer apprenticeships delivered both Online and On Campus.

The Need for Flexibility

We have worked in partnership with Mindful Education to create a suite of flexible accountancy apprenticeships that combine online learning with face-to-face classroom sessions.

Our Online and On Campus apprenticeships have been designed with employers in mind – requiring less time in college than traditional delivery models and minimising disruption in the workplace. This flexible approach means that apprentices can choose how, when and where they want to study.

Online and On Campus – the best of both worlds


Online video lectures are available on demand, and can be viewed from a phone, tablet or
computer. Lessons last for around 45 minutes and are accompanied by animations and
motion graphics to bring concepts to life. Online study means that apprentices do not need
to attend college as frequently as with traditional delivery models.


On campus, apprentices benefit from regular college classes. Experienced college tutors
will discuss and reinforce key learning points from online study and are on hand to provide
guidance on progress and assessment. Time out of the workplace is reduced thanks to the
online learning materials.

Note regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Due to the nature of our Online and On Campus
apprenticeships, with key concepts being taught online through high-quality video lectures, apprentices are able to continue their studies seamlessly with social distancing in place. Some
of the regular ‘On Campus’ lessons can be replaced by remote ‘virtual classroom’ sessions led by college tutors. This flexible approach can be easily adapted to suit government guidance and college policies.
