De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) is celebrating National Apprenticeship Week next week with a series of events aimed at employers and apprentices.
This year the Government is piloting full access for SMEs to training providers, opening up apprenticeships to the biggest pool of employers since the apprenticeship 2017 reforms.
DMU is a centre of excellence for apprenticeships in the region, drawing on its decades of experience in providing vocational programmes tailored to business needs.
During National Apprenticeship Week, which starts on February 3, DMU is hosting three events for businesses to find out how degree apprenticeships work in practice and how they can be adapted to fit their needs.
Tiffany Back, apprenticeship business manager at DMU, said: “At De Montfort University we work with employers to develop and deliver apprenticeship programmes that address the needs of today’s business community. DMU apprenticeships enable employers to develop both their staff and their business at the same time and create sustainable business networks.
By combining Gold standard academic teaching with dedicated workplace practice, DMU apprentices receive a unique and fulfilling learning experience, developing lifelong learning techniques and creating a habit of professional reflection.”
