MillionPlus Chief Executive Rachel Hewitt has written for Comment Central on the need for greater joined-up thinking across government to increase the growth of degree apprenticeships.

She writes: 

"As with so much innovative provision, it is modern universities that have pioneered and driven the delivery of degree apprenticeships. If the slow and steady growth in demand for these courses is to be increased to Mr Halfon’s satisfaction, perhaps the place for the Government to start would be on helping to raise the profile of the apprenticeship route into higher education. They must also ensure key decisions to introduce or expand degree apprenticeships are going to be supported long-term and given the chance to embed and properly assess their impact. Thereby providers are given the confidence to invest, design and deliver innovative education and training routes at degree level."
