Description

The University Vocational Awards Council's 2017 National Conference is the annual event for those engaged in Degree Apprenticeships, higher level skills and work-based learning.

UVAC is one of the most authoritative voices in the sector on education and training in HE and a leading expert on all aspects of the policy and operational requirements of higher and degree apprenticeships. It is a pleasure to set out another exciting programme that will provide a summary of policy but will mainly focus on developing partnerships and implementing good and emerging practice to ensure effective and sucessful delivery.

The key themes of the UVAC national conference



1. Degree Apprenticeship - the five year vision: how HEIs and their partners should plan and prepare for the future

2. Good Practice - Degree Apprenticeship and Work-based Learning Delivery: how HEIs and their partners approach Degree Apprenticeship and Work-based Learning focused on the following aspects:

  • Marketing and Recruitment – successfully selling Apprenticeship to large businesses and SMEs and approaches to student/apprentice recruitment

  • Programme Design, Pedagogy, Work-based, Distance and Blended Learning – approaches to successful delivery and employer/HEI/PSRB collaboration

  • Apprenticeship End Point Assessment – integrated Degree Apprenticeships and working with Apprentice End Point Assessment Organisations

  • Productivity and Social Mobility – approaches to Degree Apprenticeship that deliver the productivity and/or social mobility agendas

3. Degree Apprenticeship Success through Partnership: developing partnership approaches with other HEIs, FECs and Independent Training Providers; local, regional and national partnerships working with Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) and employer organisations

4. Technical Education and Progression to Higher Education: existing and planned technical education routes to higher education and Degree Apprenticeships - implications for student recruitment and widening participation



Speakers to be confirmed.

There will be a drinks reception for all delegates following the end of the conference until 17h00.
