The research revealed that degree apprenticeships are highly valued
The research carried out by Middlesex and their key partners, Sheffield Hallam and Staffordshire Universities, showed that degree apprenticeships are highly valued by the apprenticeships themselves and by employers. The research looked at the benefits of offering degree apprenticeships which included increased productivity, increased social mobility and increased social justice. It also looked at what structure, practices and support mechanisms need to be in place to support and encourage Higher Education Institutes to offer degree apprenticeships. A number of dissemination events were held to encourage the sharing of best practice in the delivery of degree apprenticeships and to encourage partnership working between HEIs and between HEIs and employers.
The research was brought together in a report called 'Sustainable Degree Apprenticeships' and can be downloaded below.
The Centre for Degree Apprenticeships is an online portal to support the sustainable development and delivery of higher and degree apprenticeship
A key outcome of the project has been the creation of the Centre for Degree Apprenticeships. This is an online portal and network, hosted by UVAC where HEIs can access research, support with working with employers and advice on developing institution wide culture, structure and systems to support the sustainable development and delivery of higher and degree apprenticeship.
