There are approximately 45 degree apprenticeships offered by UK universities currently. That figure continues to rise as degree apprenticeships can be a route to securing a career path while gaining life skills – without incurring huge debts.
There is a perception that degree apprenticeships are harder than studying for a degree in isolation, as students split their time between the place of learning and the workplace. Understanding how and what students need to learn, how their progress is monitored and how they can benefit from a seamless learning and working experience can be a challenge.
This is where technology is helping to bridge the gap between the learning institution, the workplace and the student, ensuring that all parties feel connected and supported throughout the process. In this whitepaper we talk you through 3 ways to build a partnership between this trifecta by:
- Supporting the learner
- Engaging the employer
- Empowering the learning institution
This white paper explores how the D2L’s learning platform Brightspace has enabled the University of Suffolk to break down barriers, create one community and deliver the best possible results for their students and partners in the industry.
