For universities, it’s imperative to have a system that can enable support for students, from enrolment to completion successfully. Most universities will use a student information system to utilise their administrative tasks and gain visibility across their data.
However, since Ofsted started monitoring universities’ degree apprenticeship delivery, several HE institutions have struggled to fulfil the regulatory requirements, receiving Grade 3 ‘Requires Improvement’ inspection outcomes. Moving forward in 2023, providers must monitor and track students’ progress to avoid costly mistakes and poor Ofsted grading.
Higher education minister Robert Halfon MP is an advocate of degree apprentices:
“Degree apprenticeships can help students to climb the ladder of opportunity into good jobs, and they play a hugely important role in social mobility, helping people who might not usually go to university kickstart their career and get a degree without the debt.
I am extremely proud that level 6 and 7 programmes now make up over 12 per cent of apprenticeships. In the last academic year, they have risen from just over 39,000 to more than 43,000. But I want us to go further.”
With support from the minister, it’s an ideal time for universities to invest in the correct systems to manage their growth that complements their current solutions. Tribal’s apprenticeship management solution, Maytas, works seamlessly with our SITS solution, enabling users to perform vital tasks needed to drive positive outcomes for their apprentices.
