Pathways, partnerships and productivity

Vocational, technical and professional education has been the beating heart of modern universities from the very start. Working in partnership with employers, often in their local regions, they have created high-quality, work-focused courses that ensure graduates are fully equipped with the skills and knowledge they need to be job-ready on day one. These modern universities are driving forward the degree apprenticeship agenda that will create new opportunities for young people.
