Higher and degree apprenticeships summit reveals lack of awareness of funding availability

Young people - Awareness of funding available for higher and degree apprenticeships - SantanderCB

Over 70 national and regional businesses have attended a seminar at Sheffield Hallam University, along with representatives of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, the Skills Funding Agency and the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership. The aim of the meeting was to raise awareness of the funding available for higher and degree apprenticeships, of which there is insufficient knowledge. Many employers present were unaware that they could receive financial assistance for existing staff aged over 24, with up to two thirds of the overall course cost being met providing the Skills Funding Agency criteria are met.
