HE Provider Support – In response to requests from HEIs at the ESFA/UVAC new Apprenticeship provider briefing on 7th April and as part of UVAC’s HEFCE funded Degree Apprenticeship Support Programme UVAC has commissioned a solicitor to:

  • Produce a Template Apprenticeship Contract between an HEI and Employer – The template contract will be available free of charge to any HE provider delivering Higher and/or Degree Apprenticeship.  The template is being developed specifically for HEIs and those engaged in the delivery of Degree Apprenticeships.


  • Produce a Template Sub-contact – This is being developed in partnership with the AoC.


  • Deliver a Workshop for Degree Apprenticeship Providers on the relationship between Training Provider and Employer under the ESFA Funding Rules. This workshop will cover:


What the Funding Rules say about Training Provider/Employer relationship


What should go into the written agreement/key issues


How the template contract is structured/should be used.

The solicitor has already developed a similar template contract for the Association of College (AoC) for use by Further Education Colleges (FECs) delivering Apprenticeship. We are also exploring the development of a sub-contractor contract, to be developed in partnership with the AoC.
