Degree Apprenticeships (Level 6 and Level 7) are relative newcomers to the HE scenes in the UK, with slightly different rules in different jurisdictions. Nevertheless, some universities have been running them for a couple of years, with several more joining, and the time is ripe for some experience sharing and discussion. Clearly the naïve meaning of “employability” doesn’t apply to apprentices, who are already employed, but the apprenticeship is explicitly designed to improve long-term employability. The training provider is responsible for the technical skills, but what about personal development? What is the balance here between the employer
and the training provider?
