The Institute for Apprenticeships, operating within the strategic guidance published by the Secretary of State, will play an important role in ensuring the success of the government’s apprenticeship reform programme.
In addition to the specific roles outlined in the guidance, the Institute should also be expected to play a role in raising the status and esteem of apprenticeships, and improving awareness of higher and degree apprenticeships delivered by universities – especially modern universities – working in partnership with employers.
Modern universities have long-standing traditions of providing professional, technical and vocational education up to and including degree level, and as such are well-qualified to lead the way on many apprenticeships courses.
