Sheffield Hallam conference reveals employers need more information about degree apprenticships

A summit held at Sheffield Hallam University has revealed a lack of awareness among employers about the funding available to develop higher and degree apprenticeships.

The event brought together more than 70 businesses with representatives from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), the Skills Funding Agency and the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). Sheffield Hallam introduced higher and degree apprenticeships last year after it successfully bid for funding for over 240 higher apprentices - the highest allocation for any university. The University currently offers three programmes with more being developed and available from 2017.
