The Future Growth of Degree Apprenticeships

The Government is committed to increasing growth in apprenticeships, including at higher levels, and has set a target of 3 million new starts by 2020. In order to help achieve this goal, degree apprenticeships were introduced in March 2015. In January 2016, Universities UK commissioned CFE to develop a position paper exploring the future growth of degree apprenticeships. Staff from a range of universities, along with representatives from sector bodies, were consulted. Key lessons as well as the issues and challenges experienced by universities are captured in the paper and informed recommendations to help ensure the future successful development of degree apprenticeships.  UUK launched the paper – ‘The Future Growth of Degree Apprenticeship’ – at an event on 18th March as part of National Apprenticeships Week.
