Degree Apprenticeships:
   Tackling Challenges and Preparing for the Future


Tuesday 2 October, etc.venue, Manchester

An exciting and positive opportunity, degree apprenticeships are fraught with complexities and ongoing rapid changes for business schools. Featuring key national stakeholders, this event will examine degree apprenticeships’ future, looking at how they should develop and flourish, and what is needed for that to happen.

Participants will learn from other business schools’ experience through a series of detailed case studies, including the student and employer perspective. These exemplars will address expanding provision, particularly into level 7, and developing the systems and processes required to manage degree apprenticeships.

The interactive format will also enable attendees, working with experts in the field, to explore solutions to other major challenges, including those within the institution, with employer engagement, and in the regulatory and funding regimes.
