Higher and Degree Apprenticeships, Knowledge Networks, Webinars and Workshops

UVAC supports for all members the development and embedding of Degree Apprenticeship Knowledge Networks (DAKNs) across several apprenticeship standards and subject specialisms. The aim of each UVAC DAKN is to facilitate a collaborative network for HE practitioners, staff and academics to engage with each other and other stakeholders to discuss apprenticeships and the skills agenda aligned to:

  • disseminating best practice,
  • learning and teaching pedagogy,
  • problem solve challenges, barriers and opportunities
  • developing an engaging forum
  • updating on policy changes and landscape
  • collaborative work and research development

The networks are aligned to the HE academic year and delivered across approx. 3-4 network events facilitated and supported by UVAC with a mixture of collaborative online and face to face DAKNs. Each DAKN is interactive, provides a platform for further Q&A, utilises guest speakers, professional and regulatory bodies and draws on showcasing across all DAKN members. Face to face network events are kindly hosted by UVAC Institution members offering the facilities needed for UVAC to support facilitation of the DAKNs.

2024 will see UVAC support the growth and embedding of existing DAKNs and the introduction of new DAKNs with some being delivered collaboratively with external stakeholders and partners. UVAC welcomes feedback on existing networks or where members would like to see further development across the DAKNs or a specific theme/focus for new DAKNs.
