Graduate Level Apprenticeships are an innovative and interesting development in Scottish business schools. At this workshop participants will hear from colleagues in Scottish universities that are already running GLAs, who will share experiences of bidding, building, and then delivering such programmes. Participants will also have an opportunity to learn about the work of the Chartered ABS Apprenticeships Working Group, with a brief update on progress elsewhere in the UK.  This event will be a great opportunity to network and to learn from each other about this exciting, but challenging new area of work.
