safeguarding standards and improving the quality of UK higher education

Quality assurance and degree apprenticeships

Date 23/05/2017

A new publication from QAA gives practical information on how degree apprenticeships will work in the four nations of the UK, and what higher education providers need to consider to ensure quality and standards.

The information will be useful for academics involved in designing, delivering or assessing apprenticeships; employers wanting to find out more about how degree apprenticeships are quality assured; and anyone thinking about undertaking an apprenticeship involving a higher education qualification.

The publication sets out clearly the different ways degree apprenticeships will work in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

It outlines the responsibilities of higher education providers in setting standards, recruitment, learning and teaching, assessment, and external examining. It also looks at how universities and colleges will work with employers and professional bodies to set the higher education learning aspect of degree apprenticeships.
