National Apprenticeship week
This week the government is launching plans to allow young people to use UCAS to search and apply for apprenticeships alongside degrees, giving them a better understanding of all the options available to them so they can get the best possible start in life.
- It’s so important that young people have a good understanding of all the options available to them, so they can make informed choices and go on to have successful careers.
- That is why today, at the start of National Apprenticeship Week, we are announcing that from this autumn UCAS will expand their service so that young people can see more personalised options including apprenticeships – and that from 2024, students will then be able to apply for apprenticeships through UCAS alongside an undergraduate degree application.
- By putting apprenticeships side-by-side with undergraduate degrees, we can help students make the very best decisions for their career – getting into good jobs that help to grow the economy.
