Degree level Apprenticeships introduced

New, degree level Apprenticeships are due to start in England in September 2015 allowing young people to gain a full Honours degree while earning a wage and paying no fees. They will start in digital and software fields with two thirds of course fees covered by the Government while the employers pay trainees’ wages etc. Employers involved include BT, Capgemini, Ford, Fujitsu, GlaxoSmithKline and the John Lewis Partnership.
