HERA (Higher Education Reporting in Apprenticeships)

HERA (Higher Education Reporting in Apprenticeships)

UVAC is delighted to welcome you to HERA – your gateway to unlocking the transformative power of higher education (HE) apprenticeship delivery through innovative data analysis and market intelligence. 


HERA, which stands for Higher Education Reporting in Apprenticeships, is not just a data insight tool; it’s your strategic partner in navigating the dynamic landscape of apprenticeship programme delivery. Commissioned by UVAC and designed by RCU Limited, HERA provides UVAC university members with valuable insights and actionable intelligence on apprenticeship performance.


At its core, HERA is a highly visual and intuitive platform, offering a comprehensive overview of higher and degree apprenticeships. It’s not just about numbers; it’s about empowering universities to make informed decisions and drive meaningful change in their apprenticeship offerings.


You can explore the HERA platform and see what it provides in a short introductory video below and by listening to the instructional webinar hosted on Wednesday 17th April HERE.


In summary you’ll find that HERA gives you:

‘State of the Nation’ Apprenticeship Insight

HERA serves as the authoritative source for all things related to HE delivered apprenticeships. Whether you’re looking for the latest participation rates, performance data, or emerging trends, HERA has it covered.


A Platform to Identify Opportunities 

With HERA, UVAC and its members gain a powerful tool for uncovering successful practices, identifying risks, and optimising opportunities. It’s more than just data; it’s actionable insights that support growth plans and drives success.


Performance Benchmarking

In today’s competitive landscape, benchmarking is essential for measuring progress and staying ahead. HERA provides UVAC members with a robust benchmarking tool, allowing comparisons in performance against a range of sector, national and regional benchmarks, facilitating continuous improvement and excellence.

HERA isn’t just a powerful tool; it’s a strategic ally in the HE sector’s journey towards excellence in higher and degree apprenticeships. 


How Do You Register To Use?

As an in-year membership benefit, HERA is freely available to all UVAC member universities delivering apprenticeships. There are no limits to the number of logins you can create for your organisation.


You are also welcome to join us for a HERA Dashboard User webinar, on Wednesday 17 April, which will provide you with a visual guide on how it can be used by members to build a narrative around apprenticeship delivery, its quality and comparison against national benchmarks.  Click HERE to register for this webinar.
