Degree apprenticeships continue to be at the forefront of the university agenda. When looking at the financial benefits for both students and universities it is easy to see why they have become such a popular route of education.
The 2019 seminar will put degree apprenticeships under the microscope and discuss funding, exploring the range of subjects offered, and widening access and participation.
Join us and hear from those from within and outside the sector, as well as from government. You will leave the event with a clearer idea of how to initiate or further develop your own degree apprenticeship work.

This session will allow delegates to discuss some of the initial findings from the ‘future of apprenticeships’ work being undertaken by UUK and feed into future work.
During the session we will hear about the ways in which universities can best collaborate with business in order to provide the best for students undertaking degree apprenticeships.
This session will also give delegates a chance to hear from leading companies on the opportunities they offer and what they see the positives and challenges of degree apprenticeships to be for them. This session will look at both how to effectively engage businesses with your university, as well as effective engagement once degree apprenticeships are underway.
