The EPC is pleased to announce the launch of its new Degree Apprenticeships Toolkit for Engineering Departments which can be found on our website at the following link: Degree Apprenticeships Toolkit
The EPC Degree Apprenticeships Toolkit is a result of the work conducted to address the recommendations of the Perkins Review of Engineering Skills on the importance of investing in apprenticeships to create high qualified engineers, by the Engineering Education, Employability and Skills (EEES) sub committee – Working Group 2: Higher Education in the Workplace (led by Professor Simon Hodgson).
The toolkit aims to support university departments, academic staff and prospective course leaders tasked with developing higher and degree apprenticeships. It covers:
- What is a higher or Degree Apprenticeship?
- Why should we get involved?
- Designing a degree Apprenticeship Programme
- Are there specific requirements an HEI needs to be aware of when planning the delivery of Degree Apprenticeships?
- Getting started – advice for university departments
- Apprenticeships in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
- Frequently Asked Questions
The University of Sheffield has been an early entrant to this new form of higher learning. Read their inspiring case study here.
