THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
The future of Degree Apprenticeships (DA) in England will be considered by delegates at this conference.
It follows the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy earlier this year, and comes at a time when many employers are expressing concern at their ability to meet their higher-level skills needs, post-Brexit.
Delegates will discuss the lessons that can be learnt following the introduction of the DA programmes, as well as further opportunities for engaging employers and promoting Degree Apprenticeships as an option for young people.
Further sessions will consider the challenges for maintaining the quality of programmes and the lessons that can be learnt from higher-level apprenticeship programmes from other countries.
The seminar will bring together policymakers with key stakeholders including universities, FE colleges, representatives of employers and trade unions, careers advisors, trade and professional associations, academics, and members of the national and trade press.
