Degree apprenticeships: a guide for higher education providers
How to develop and deliver degree apprenticeships
To develop a degree apprenticeship programme, higher education providers must:
1. Register as a training provider
You must either be registered on the apprenticeship provider and assessment register (APAR) or be a subcontractor to a provider on the register.
2. Align your apprenticeship with an apprenticeship standard
Standards are developed by employer groups known as 'trailblazers'. The standards describe a job and the kind of skills and activities it requires.
When designing an apprenticeship programme with employers, providers must ensure that it aligns with an approved apprenticeship standard.
Developing degree apprenticeships
Degree apprenticeships involve the same quantity of study as traditional higher education programmes.
Degree apprentices must not pay the costs of training or assessment and should not be charged student fees.
