Degree Apprenticeship in Risk and Safety Management
Risktec successfully organised an Employer Group to develop the Risk and Safety Management Professional Non-integrated Degree Apprenticeship (Level 7) for England.
The apprenticeship is designed for practitioners in risk and safety management roles within high hazard industries. It creates rounded professionals capable of working competently in their chosen industry but with risk and safety management knowledge, skills and behaviours that are transferable across high hazard industries.
