“Queen Mary continues to be motivated by, and responsive to, the needs of industry and we believe strongly that Degree Apprenticeships are a model that fits neatly with our values and ethos as an institution. Degree Apprenticeships are therefore increasingly serving as a mechanism for us to achieve our mission of creating and disseminating knowledge to the highest international standards. As a former apprentice myself, I wholeheartedly support their expansion at Queen Mary.”
Professor Colin Bailey, President and Principal of Queen Mary University of London
Queen Mary University of London currently offers the Level 6 Digital and Technology Solutions Professional Degree Apprenticeship. We are actively scoping delivery of further programmes both at undergraduate and postgraduate level. To this end, employers are encouraged to make contact if they have an interest in a particular standard that has already been approved, or is in the process of being approved by the Institute for Apprenticeships.
We are also currently engaged in a number of Trailblazer groups and have assisted such groups right through from the Expression of Interest through to consultation and approval by the IfA. We work closely with the ESFA, IfA and QAA so are able to navigate the increasingly complex apprenticeship space to help industry achieve its workforce needs.
If you are interested in discussing opportunities for the development of a new or existing Degree Apprenticeship Standard, please make contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
