Sheffield Hallam University has received £500k funding to create a Centre for Excellence for Degree Apprenticeships. This will provide specific high quality learning for apprentices looking to earn a degree alongside apprenticeship-style practical experience.
Sheffield Hallam is already a leading institution for degree apprenticeships, but this extra dedicated funding will offer a huge boost. The university's partners in the area currently include Wipro, Barnsley Met Borough Council, Sheffield Forgemasters, Tonic Works and L&P Springs, but the list is ever-increasing.
The uni has taken on 380 degree apprentices since it began offering the combination course. It reportedly hopes to increase this figure to over 500 by the end of the academic year. The new funding will help Sheffield Hallam to reach a new goal of 750 degree apprentices enrolled by 2019, and 2,250 by 2021.
The centre will provide unique spaces for the apprenticeships on each specialist course, and will include specialist IT facilities and informal areas for networking and independent study.
It's hoped that the centre will open by September 2018, for the next academic year.
