The Office for Students (OfS) has been told to establish a £40 million fund to drive up degree apprenticeship provision in the next two years, which follows on from £8 million given this year, that can be used for providers offering the higher apprenticeships for the first time. Education Secretary Gillian Keegan wrote that the OfS should support establishments with “the greatest potential to diversify growth at level 6,” and confirmed it could be used to support providers looking to deliver degree apprenticeships for the first time, as well as for existing providers to widen their programmes and help improve access to the courses.
