2019 saw increased sector and media focus on degree apprenticeships, with UUK publishing a report dedicated to the topic. Building on this momentum and work, UUK is hosting a one-day event bringing together sector experts and practitioners to take an in-depth look at the developments and future of degree apprenticeships.

The day will be an opportunity to gain a full understanding of degree apprenticeship policy developments and best practice to help you make the most of the opportunities available to you.

We will cover topics such as:

  • Degree apprenticeships meeting the digital skills need, with Jenny Taylor (IBM) and Bob Clift (The Tech Partnership)
  • Widening participation
  • Maximising the value of degree apprenticeships
  • Views and needs of British industry
  • What the government thinks
