Course summary


This degree apprenticeship has been specifically designed to enable the apprentice to develop the knowledge, skills, professional behaviours and values required by the nationally approved MSc Apprenticeship Standard in Risk and Safety.

As a degree apprentice, they are an employee earning a wage (at least the Apprenticeship Minimum Wage) usually working at least 30 hours per week. They are also a full-time student at Middlesex University with the same access and entitlements to services and support as they undertake their degree.

Once they successfully complete their degree apprenticeship, they will have met the Apprenticeship Standard and be recognised as being fully competent to carry out the role of a risk and safety professional. This programme also includes the opportunity to gain professional status as all apprenticeships in England are required to include professional recognition where available.

Course content

This programme of study is very much designed to focus on developing the apprentice's skills in occupational health and safety, enabling assessment and evaluation of risks based on sound scientific and evidenced practice.

Assignments are built around practical exercises and outputs that the apprentice will need to provide in the field of work, including management reports and accident appraisals. The apprentice will develop an informed, critical and imaginative attitude towards professional practice and provide them with transferable skills and competence in their chosen field.

A critical component of the award is the development of their communication skills using a variety of media to specialist, senior executives and non-specialist persons on matters pertaining to occupational safety and health.


The apprentice will be required to submit a range of evidence of work-integrated learning for assessment that reflect aspects of practice as a Senior Leader. This can include learning journals, portfolios, role playing, work-based projects, reports, professional development plans and a business transformation project.


This degree apprenticeship produces graduates with a wide range of professional, graduate and transferable skills. Within the programme the apprentice is able to direct their learning to all aspects of professional practice so that on completion of the award they are able to offer employers broad knowledge and skills applied to practice. The award has been matched to the needs of a variety of stakeholders and in particular in relation to the strategic management and operational practice of the high reliability organisational sector.
