"Through Degree Apprenticeships, we are looking to diversify our educational offer, align ourselves with key national government policy changes and respond to a changing external landscape to ensure that we contribute to regional and national employment needs.
Degree Apprenticeships will allow us to enhance our relationships with business, both private and public sector, ignite new ones, and will provide a means of offering alternative educational pathways, entry points and student experiences. We are committed to investing in this initiative as a means of widening access and participation, and enhancing student employability."
As part of the HEFCE-funded project Autumn 2017 - Autumn 2018, the Academic Technology team is delivering two workstreams:
- digital learning pathways for two new Degree Apprenticeships
- introducing a new eportfolio for apprentices, employers and university staff to track progress
More information will be made available soon.
