Event description


Are you an HE provider who is planning, or already delivering, Higher and Degree Apprenticeships?

Starting in January, SDN and UVAC are holding a six-part webinar series to help you design and implement your delivery model for apprenticeships.

The webinar series will take you through the different approaches being taken by HE providers to the delivery and end-point assessment of apprenticeships, how you oversee quality, and its implications for staff. The series includes case study examples, practical tools and actions for you to implement.

You can book onto individual webinars for £49 (+VAT), or book onto the whole series for just £245 (+VAT). This includes the live webinars (with Q&A), webinar recordings and supporting resources.
