Degree apprenticeships: making the most of the opportunities

21 Feb 2018, 09:30 - 16:30
20 Tavistock Square 
United Kingdom


This one day conference will give you a full understanding of degree apprenticeship policy developments and expose you to best practice and trailblazer case studies to help you make the most of the opportunities available to you in degree apprenticeships.

Why are we talking about degree apprenticeships now?

Degree apprenticeships are too important for universities to ignore, providing an important income stream and a new business opportunity, as well as providing new opportunities to non-traditional students.

At the beginning of October, Justine Greening announced 27 new degree apprenticeship schemes. These 4,500 new apprenticeship places are added to existing schemes to help the government reach its target of 3 million apprenticeships by 2020.

The momentum behind degree apprenticeships is hard to ignore, and now is the ideal time for universities to be positioning themselves as innovators and making the most of the opportunities.​

Join us to receive the most up to date briefing on the opportunities surrounding degree apprenticeships and to learn from trailblazers. You will leave with a clearer idea of how to initiate or further develop your own degree apprenticeship work.
