Degree Apprenticeship in the Built environment: Transitioning to blended delivery model

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


Degree apprenticeships (DA) are proving to become very effective training delivery model in higher education and differ significantly to traditional degree programmes. The apprenticeship model (embedding the structure and learning style) is fundamental to DAs successful delivery. However, delivery models of traditional degree programmes are often mirrored into DA operational delivery. Consequently, affecting apprentices valued learning, employer engagement, professional body memberships and university satisfaction ratings. This presentation discusses a blended model for Degree apprenticeships in the Built environment. The presentation includes insight into the blended model delivery, strengths, opportunities and transitioning based on early lessons learned. Specific data from Apprenticeship and employer surveys are presented and discussed, highlighting best practices for blended model delivery for Degree Apprenticeship in the Built environment. This presentation would provide the needed awareness to a community of DA stakeholders on enhancing the delivery of Degree Apprenticeship in the Built environment. Lessons learned are currently being developed into an operational schema to be published in Built environment education Journals. This schema would benefit employers, professional bodies and the university community (especially apprentices, tutors, programme leaders, heads of apprenticeships). It would provide the needed awareness and systems to monitor and deliver to high value degree apprenticeships in the Built environment.
