Tiro Higher Education

Since 2005, Tiro has trained the future leaders of our scientific and technical workforce.

But until now, few have progressed onto higher level apprenticeship programmes.

Tiro has worked with Middlesex University to develop and deliver our brand-new degree apprenticeships. This combines Tiro’s nearly two decades of experience in work-based learning with the academic quality and rigour of one of the UK’s leading young universities.

But that’s not all.

These new degree apprenticeships have been built with employers, for employers. Their content, structure, and delivery have been shaped by some of the country’s top employers in the Chemicals, Biosciences, and Environmental sectors.

Looking to become an apprentice?

This is a big win for the Science and Technology community. For too long, the workforce has lacked graduates with the experience to apply what they’ve learned in the real world. Now, by combining cutting-edge scientific theory with Tiro’s innovative learning strategy, the ability to apply knowledge in the workplace can be baked-in to every new Science and Technology leader.

Looking to become an apprentice?

Our Degree programmes are validated by Middlesex University.

These programmes are a fantastic opportunity for Tiro’s Level 3 Technicians to progress. They also enable existing or new staff in more senior laboratory roles to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours they need to fulfil their vital roles more effectively.
