Section 5: Employer Engagement

Published for 2023-24

1.Degree apprenticeship provision at UCL is developed to meet sector challenges and employer needs using insight from Industry Advisory Boards, existing relationships with employers and alumni. Evidence of employer and industry engagement in degree apprenticeship design is reviewed and approved via PMAP and DAP.
2.UCL departments work with employers in the design and delivery of degree apprenticeships, including setting clear expectations of the apprentices to develop their knowledge, skills and behaviours (KSBs). Throughout the delivery of the degree apprenticeship, UCL departments will collaborate with and support the employer to ensure apprentices stay on track and develop KSBs to achieve well on the degree apprenticeship programme and beyond. The template for an Employer Handbook can be found in Annex 11.7
3.The employer voice is heard in all quality assurance processes relating to degree apprenticeships at UCL to capture continuous improvement. Employer feedback also informs institutional governance of degree apprenticeships to provide oversight of the employers’ experience of delivering degree apprenticeships with UCL departments.
