Barrier Busting Round Table Forum – with the ESFA

October 1, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

UVAC and ESFA would like to invite UVAC members to take part in a barrier busting round table forum on Monday 1st October 10.30 – 1.30. Venue TBC

We are aware that the challenges facing Higher Education in delivering apprenticeships continue unabated. Both UVAC and ESFA believedthat the time is right, as we approach the beginning of the second full academic year after the start of the apprenticeship reform implementation, to bring both organisations together. Our aim is to discuss and agree what practical steps we can take to address barriers or capitalise on the opportunities that are within our existing remit. We also want to take the opportunity to also to raise the priority and improve understanding of the impact of other issues for better informed discussions elsewhere.

This roundtable session will take place from 10.30 until 1. 30 and will be followed by lunch and an opportunity for networking.


We will be finalising the scope of the session nearer to the date so that is as current as possible, but we are canvassing for your views on this now. Let us know which about the topics, issues and focus that you think should be included in the session by completing the survey HERE – our first discussion with ESFA on topics is Monday 10th so post your views early !
