Coverage* – Higher and Degree Apprenticeship policy is ‘fluid’ and the operational system particularly in respect of the levy and the Digital Apprenticeship Service (DAS) has still to be determined.  Higher Apprenticeships also remain an important policy focus. This conference will update delegates on the latest policy and operational system through senior BIS, Skills Funding Agency, Higher Education Funding Council for England and UVAC presentations.

By November 2016, the issue of most interest is likely to be how to successfully deliver Higher and Degree Apprenticeships. This year’s annual conference promises to offer an insight to achieving the following:

1. Developing an institutional / business Higher and Degree Apprenticeship offer for employers

2. Establishing internal institutional / business systems in finance, student support, MIS, quality to support delivery of Higher and Degree Apprenticeships

3. Successful partnerships with other universities, Higher Education Institutions, Further Education Colleges and Private Training Providers

4. Marketing and selling Higher and Degree Apprenticeships to employers

5. Recommended approaches to Higher and Degree Apprenticeships in key sector and occupational areas

6. Navigating the Apprenticeship operational system including funding and procurement
