Degree Apprenticeships explained

  • Venue: Richmond Building

A heavily subsidised scheme to help you and your business

In April 2017 the government will introduce a mandatory 0.5 per cent apprenticeship levy for all organisations with a pay bill over £3 million each year. There is therefore significant Government funding per apprentice, for three years towards the cost of a degree apprenticeship, enabling both large and small businesses to develop existing employees and/or recruit young talented individuals.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Portsmouth University as providers of Degree Apprenticeships - Associate Pro-Vice Chancellor and Professor Paul Hayes, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education and Student Experience). 
  • Further information on the levy and how it could affect your organisation - Khurram Rana, Chartered Management Institute.
  • The benefits from the perspective of the apprentice and the employer - Adrian Ingham, CEO, Yourcentre.
