  •   Mark Wilson, UCAS
     Widening horizons for college and school leavers: traditional degree or degree apprenticeship? 

    UCAS has been the go-to place for students for many years, as well as their teachers and advisers, who consider the traditional university experience as the next step after school or college. As the number of higher and degree apprenticeships grows, UCAS is in a unique position to support this development, and gauge the response from traditional degree audiences to these new opportunities.
    This session aims to share some of these insights, and will provide an overview of how UCAS is encouraging wider consideration of apprenticeship opportunities in higher education. It will be relevant to all recruiters interested in the development of higher and degree apprenticeship opportunities and reaching school and college leaver audiences to fill apprenticeship vacancies.
