Degree apprenticeships: understanding the opportunities

UUK, London, 28th February 2017

  1. A one-day seminar that will give delegates a full understanding of the policy landscape and a clear idea of how to implement degree apprenticeships in their institution. Delegates will hear case studies from leaders within the sector and have an opportunity to feed into Universities UK work in this area.

  2. Key themes at this seminar on degree apprenticeships will include:
    The national policy landscape
    The future growth of degree apprenticeships
    The critical role of universities in delivering apprenticeships
    The degree apprenticeship development fund
    Developing frameworks for assessment
  3. Why are we talking about degree apprenticeships now?

    The government has set a target of 3 million apprenticeships to be delivered by 2020 and, with the introduction the apprenticeship levy in April 2017, universities have the opportunity to position themselves as innovators in this field.

    Degree apprenticeships are an important opportunity for universities to widen participation, forge closer links with employers and drive productivity and economic growth.

    As degree apprenticeships can be particularly attractive to non-traditional students, they also support widening participation goals. They offer a way for universities to diversify their offer and develop alternatives to traditional full-time on-campus study, with online, distance, weekend and blended learning.

    This seminar is a unique opportunity to receive the most relevant and up to date information you need to initiate, or further enhance and develop your degree apprenticeship programme.
