During the course, apprentices will be encouraged to integrate their studies and their professional practice. They will have work-based assignments to complete, through which they will be asked to consider how they are applying their learning and skills to their work, the impact and how they can improve their practice.
Degree Apprenticeships allow employers to develop employees in specific areas, meaning you are adding to your skills pool. This also empowers your staff with relevant knowledge that aligns with their career goals and therefore greater job satisfaction.
Fill skills gaps
Employers can include Degree Apprenticeships in their talent strategy in several ways. You can use it to upskill and retrain existing staff, which can improve staff retention, or you can recruit new talent into your organisation to fill a skills gap you have identified.
