HolonIQ invites you to their event

The Rise of Skills, Competencies & Degree-level Apprenticeships in HE

About this event

The pressure for higher education to deliver graduates with 'job-ready' skills is greater than ever. More organisations and governments are implementing skills-based hiring policies instead of using the degree as a proxy. Skills and Competency-based models in higher education are gaining favour, with degree-level apprenticeships emerging.

Join this session to deep-dive into how 'stackable credentials' are being used by universities and hear about new models such as degree-level apprenticeships and professional apprenticeship providers.
