Abstract

Degree apprenticeships are collaborations between employers and universities, to deliver work- experienced graduates, with skills aligned to industry needs. Degree apprentices are salaried employees, spending 80% of their time working, including work-based learning, and 20% studying away from the workplace (e.g., at university). This scoping research used 290 IT degree apprenticeship job adverts from England and Scotland’s official apprenticeship websites to get insight into employers’ strategies for apprenticeship recruitment, especially their expectations of their apprentices.
