Given the growth in the number of starts on apprenticeships at the higher level (which has inevitably drawn comparisons with the declining rate of starts on apprenticeship at level 2 particularly and, level 3) now is a good time to better understand the make-up of the higher and degree apprenticeship cohort. PARTICULARLY GIVEN THE VIEW BY SOME IN THE SECTOR THAT CAST DOUBT ON THE VALUE AND INTEGRITY OF HIGHER AND DEGREE APPRENTICESHIPS.
UVAC in association with corporate member OCR (part of Cambridge Assessment) is carrying out some qualitative research to support a think piece outcome that will help characterise the type of learners/learning in this landscape and how this aligns with current technical education polices including reform to vocational qualifications at level 3 (including the introduction to T levels) and levels 4 and 5. Our interest is specifically in those young people progressing directly from level 3 qualification achievement into higher and degree apprenticeship opportunities.
We invite you to complete a very short Survey Monkey questionnaire as a gateway to a follow-up interview potentially.
You will find the survey here.
Deadline is Friday, 26 April 2019.
