A discussion piece of how apprenticeships can be used by HEIs as employers.
The paper explores the current apprenticeship landscape; what HEIs are already doing with apprenticeships; the arguments for using apprenticeships in the sector. There is then a case study on how the University of Birmingham uses apprenticeships before a discussion about future directions.
The paper reports that although there are a range of advantages for using apprenticeships, HEIs could still use apprenticeships more.
This paper uses a range of sources as detailed in the reference.
