Apprenticeships can bring exciting opportunities, not just for apprentices themselves, but for employers looking to develop their workforce and for education providers with ambition to expand their provision.

The legal framework for apprenticeships has evolved to encompass apprenticeship standards, the Institute for Apprenticeships & Technical Education and the apprenticeship levy. Our expert judgment and experience advising higher education clients and employers means we can help our clients achieve their objectives within a changing legal landscape.

This might involve creating new apprenticeship arrangements, or expanding existing ones. We can:

  • Help interpret and implement the apprenticeship system.
  • Develop template documentation.
  • Provide practical, commercial advice.

Our work includes advising on innovative strategies and collaborations for engaging with apprenticeships, such as the implications of transferring existing staff onto higher and degree apprenticeships.
