Employers less enthusiastic than unis. about degree apprenticeships?
The "Sunday Times" reports today that 14,000 degree apprenticeships will be available for students entering uni. in 2019. 15 Russell Group unis., including Cambridge, Durham and King's London, are among the 101 providers.
However, although firms with wage bills of £3m or more have had to contribute 0.5% of their payroll costs to the levy set up to fund these since April 2017, only 8% of the money invested has been drawn down by employers to fund apprenticeships.
