Higher and Degree Apprenticeships - Approaches to Successful Delivery
Degree Apprenticeship policy is especially ‘fluid’ and the operational system, particularly in respect of the Apprenticeship Levy and the Digital Apprenticeship Service (DAS), has still to be determined. The Higher Apprenticeship offer also remains a significant policy agenda. It is therefore important that stakeholders are updated on the latest policy, operational and funding system through BIS, Skills Funding Agency (SFA), Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and UVAC presentations.
