The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) is inviting North West businesses to find out how they can build and upskill their workforces through degree apprenticeships at two free events. These will take place at both the Preston and the Burnley Campuses on Tuesday the 7th and Thursday the 10th of February. The sessions will aim to showcase the benefits of degree apprenticeships to employers and highlight the many options available to their employees.
Attendees at these events will hear from employers who have developed their workforce through degree apprenticeships as well as from learners who have successfully progressed their careers after completing degree apprenticeships. Some of the represented businesses will include BAE Systems, Warburtons, Booths, Digital Transit, Why Us and Elite 04.
There will also be new details announced about the new Apprenticeship Matching Service, a free recruitment service for employers who are looking to recruit an apprentice into their organisation.
Speaking on the matter, Martin Blunt, UCLan’s Head of the Enterprise and Engagement Unit, said:
“Degree apprenticeships are such an important resource for both employers and employees and, as the largest provider of degree apprenticeships in the region, we have so many options available. Our two free events will allow interested businesses to come along, speak to representatives from the University and meet other employers and employees who have already benefited from degree apprenticeships.”
UCLan’ currently has around 2,000 higher and degree apprentices on programmes across a wide range of sectors including building services, construction, digital, engineering, healthcare, legal, management, policing and professional services, and works with more than 400 employers.
