Degree apprenticeships: Key workshops

Quality assessment workshops

HEFCE, in partnership with Ofsted, will:
  • explain our proposed approach to assuring quality of degree apprenticeships at levels 4 and 5
  • explore with attendees what aspects of that approach could usefully be tested during the proposed pilot year 2017-18.

UVAC provider workshop, 16 August, HEFCE's London office

UVAC are hosting a provider workshop on the new non-levy procurement round at HEFCE's London office. Details to follow shortly.

Support for institutions

Higher education providers intending to deliver apprenticeships, including degree apprenticeships, must register on the SFA-managed Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP). The registration process closed on 25 November 2016.

To support institutions through application to RoATP, HEFCE is working with the University Vocational Awards Council (UVAC), to develop and deliver guidance and support. 

Employer contract and commitment statement templates

UVAC has commissioned a solicitor to produce:

  • a template apprenticeship contract between an HE provider and an employer
  • a sub-contractor contract template between an HE provider provider and a sub-contractor.

UVAC has also developed a template for a commitment statement. This is intended to meet the commitment statement requirements in the funding rules, but also offer a wider content to support the apprenticeship.

UVAC will be running a new provider workshop on 20 June for HEIs that have joined ESFA's RoATP. Any institution that has not previously attended one of these workshops is strongly encouraged to do so now. Further details are available at UVAC's website.
