UVAC to advise Government on degree apprenticeship


UVAC to advise Government on degree apprenticeship

12th March 2015

In an announcement today, the Prime Minister announced plans to rollout degree apprenticeships.

Degree apprenticeships will involve groups of businesses, universities and colleges coming together to develop practical degree courses which will allow people to combine the academic knowledge from a traditional university degree and the practical experience that are both vital for success in the labour market.

To find out more about the employers involved in degree apprenticeships, see the BIS press release here.

The government is forming a board of leading business, university, and college groups to oversee the new programme as it rolls out, which will include UVAC, as one of the leading university groups engaged in this agenda, along with representatives from the CBI, FSB, EEF, Universities UK, University Alliance, Russell Group and the Association of Colleges.

We will be keeping UVAC members updated as things develop, but if you need any information in the meantime, get in touch with us.
