Apprenticeships full text
The development of a degree apprenticeship may offer an opportunity to work with a strategically important employer on a large or prestigious programme. Apprenticeships differ from a traditional on-campus undergraduate or taught postgraduate programmes in a number of important ways – please see guidance note G7.1 for:
Oxford Brookes University is on the Education & Skills Funding Agency’s (ESFA) Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers, as are a number of members of the University’s Associate College Partnership.
The Quality & Learning Infrastructure Committee has established an Apprenticeships sub-group to provide oversight of policies relating to the management of the University’s higher and degree apprenticeship provision.
Apprenticeship programmes are subject to the same requirements in respect of annual monitoring and quinquennial re-validation as other home or collaborative academic provision (as applicable). Please refer to the relevant sections of the Quality & Standards Handbook. Apprenticeships are also subject to the funding body’s requirements regarding monitoring and progression, and, from 1st April 2021, all apprenticeship provision is subject to Ofsted inspection.
