Local degree apprenticeships created through government fund
Eighteen universities and colleges across England have benefited from a government fund totalling £4.5 million to develop new degree apprenticeships. This will provide thousands of opportunities in sectors including nursing, construction and software engineering.
MidKent College is pleased to announce that they will be supporting the University of Greenwich to develop degree apprenticeships in our specific sector areas.
Degree apprenticeships are specifically designed by universities, employers and professional bodies, and will provide students with high level skills, as an alternative to a traditional degree course. Successful students will not only achieve a full bachelor’s or master’s degree, but will also hold vital up-to-date industry information.
Stephen Batchelor, Assistant Principal for Higher Level Skills at MidKent College said “This exciting opportunity to work with the University of Greenwich will enable us to meet the needs of our local and regional economies by providing the highly skilled workforce that they will require in key sector areas.
The degree apprenticeships will be a valuable opportunity for employers due to the mix of high level skills and industry experience that they provide. We are proud to support this initiative to develop the workforce of the future.”
The apprenticeships on offer at the University of Greenwich will reflect the needs of local employers and will include construction apprenticeships, engineering apprenticeships and nursing apprenticeships.
