Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


The Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) is proud to announce that it will be offering postgraduate level apprenticeships (Level 7) in a select range of professional fields. These apprenticeships are currently in development and going forward we are actively working with employers who are looking to upskill their staff and utilise the levy in place.

As an employer you will benefit from:

  • Developing a University of Cambridge course linked to a required skills gap
  • Workforce development and attracting new talent
  • Diversity, inclusion and social mobility
  • Utilising your levy
  • For new apprenticeships starting on or after 1 April 2019, non-levy funded employers can claim 95% of levy from the government pot and top up with 5% of their own training budget

If you are an England-based employer, you can r​egister your interest to learn more on how a Level 7 apprenticeship can benefit your workforce and company. Our business partnerships team will address your enquiry and guide you through the next steps.

Financial support

As England adjusts to the new normal, the Government is introducing financial support to help employers hire new apprentices. Through apprenticeships, you can build competitive skills to encourage growth in your organisation. Find out more about incentive payments for hiring a new apprentice.
