Degree Apprenticeships: are qualifications the linchpin of success?

With contributions from Vince Cable, BIS Secretary from 2010 to 2015, Mandy Crawford-Lee at UVAC and Terry Hodgetts, Director of Corporate Client Solutions at Aston University, this white paper explores the history and rationale of the mandated qualification, the competing pressure on them with regard to integration, and the reasons why mandated qualifications matter.

What universities should look for in an end-to-end apprenticeship technology solution.

The growth in the number of higher and degree apprenticeships offered by universities since their introduction by the government in 2015 has brought about some unique challenges for universities enrolling and managing new learners. 

This guide outlines the core challenges universities are facing to deliver these apprenticeship programmes, and how an effective end-to-end apprenticeship technology solution can mitigate these challenges through a modern, technology-driven delivery solution. 

We understand the challenges universities face surrounding higher level apprenticeships:

Multiple existing systems

You need to communicate with existing systems. Use our APIs for university systems whilst making the most of Aptem’s apprenticeship features.

Working with employers

Working with employers brings with it the need to pass data audits. Aptem Apprentice stores all learner information in a single place which eliminates data complexity and makes passing audits easy.

The Individualised Learning Record (ILR)

Apprenticeship delivery means additional processes and systems, for example submitting ILRs for funding, so avoiding duplication is important. Aptem Apprentice streamlines processes, eliminating repetition, duplication and errors, with tools like automatic ILR validation and the Onboarding Wizard.

Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs)

Copying materials between full-time student VLEs and apprentice VLEs is time consuming. Aptem Apprentice integrates with existing VLEs, linking learning delivery to the Skills, Knowledge and Behaviours of the Apprenticeship Standard and automatically tracks progression. By keeping existing VLE setups, and linking assets, it saves considerable time and effort.

End-point assessment (EPA)

Learning delivery takes many forms, from lectures to workshops to eLearning – you need to capture and map evidence. Assessments can be created in Aptem Apprentice with ease, with automatic evidence capture including links to external assessments to produce an ePortfolio for End Point Assessment.

Progress Tracking & Reporting

From keeping everyone on track, to maintaining quality control and individual performance, our progress reporting and Predictive QAR® make spotting problems and fine tuning your programmes a snap.
