Description

Heard about Graduate Level Apprenticeships?

Want to find out more about what they are and how you can get involved?

Want to find out about what GLAs UWS are running now and could in the future?


Come along to our ‘Lunch & Learn’ event

Enterprise and Employer Engagement warmly invite all University of the West of Scotland staff to attend this event.

Learn about…

  • The Background to GLAs: how Skills Development Scotland (SDS) has been engaging with industry, universities and colleges in recent years to develop this new addition to the apprenticeship family, and the University’s involvement as a provider of Graduate Level Apprenticeships (GLAs)

  • The UWS Story so far: how the School of Engineering and Computing are developing two exciting new work-based learning programmes

  • The Future: the potential opportunities for other Schools to become involved as GLAs are set to expand

  • Support for you and your School: how Enterprise and Employer Engagement can support Schools as further competitive funding processes are put out to tender

After participating in a competitive process, UWS was awarded funding of over £2 million from SDS to design and deliver GLA programmes in Software Development and Engineering Design and Manufacture, which the School of Engineering and Computing are launching in September 2017. Further details regarding UWS GLAs is available on our webpage at: www.uws.ac.uk/apprenticeships
