RoATP and ITT in-depth session
Venue: HEFCE London Office
Date: Friday 11 November from 1000
For higher education providers with specific questions about the RoATP or ITT that are planning to submit applications imminently.  This day will provide direct access to UVAC colleagues who can provide support and guidance around application questions.  
This day will summarize but not replicate information available in the webinars, so it is suggested that institutions planning to attend this in-depth session review these prior to attending.  The day will comprise:
·       1000 -1030 – Introduction and brief overview of processes
·       1030 -1130 – Group question and answer session
·      1130 -1630 – Individual surgery sessions.
Spaces for this intensive day will be very limited, to ensure those requiring one-to-one sessions are accommodated. Please email degreeapprenticeships@hefce.ac.uk if you would like to attend this event, indicating whether you would also like to book an individual surgery session.

 

Follow the link to the FAQs created by UVAC in response to questions raised by higher education providers either delivering, or planning to deliver, Higher and Degree apprenticeships. 

Please read these FAQs in conjunction with the invitations above.
