Information for students
Page last updated: 23/07/2020
Information about teaching and assessment arrangements for students on degree apprenticeships, as well as changes to employment arrangements and furloughing for those affected.
In order to reduce unnecessary social contact, your School has moved to online learning resources. Further information on teaching arrangements will be communicated by School staff. A substantial amount of your course content is available through MyBeckett so we would encourage you to use MyBeckett for self-study.
Apprenticeship funding rules allow for part-time study, so please contact your employer and Course Director to discuss how this can be arranged, along with how your 20% off the job training will be calculated and completed. Please note that part-time work will not be appropriate for some apprenticeships.
If you are unable to undertake the 20% off the job training as planned, please contact your employer and Course Director to discuss a possible break in learning and how you may restart your apprenticeship at a later date.
The university is currently planning to ensure that no student is disadvantaged in relation to the confirmation of assessment outcomes. Further information on this will be available soon and communicated to you.
The university and your employer will support you to ensure you are not disadvantaged with any changes to assessments on your apprenticeship. Please contact your employer and Course Director to discuss how this situation can be managed.
We are working to deliver assessments to take place remotely wherever possible. Your School will be in touch with you to confirm arrangements once they are finalised.
Any changes that are made are likely to be specific to your apprenticeship, please contact your Course Director to discuss how your new role meets the requirements of your apprenticeship.
In some cases, you may need to instigate a break in study from your apprenticeship.
Where apprentices are furloughed (granted a leave of absence) you are permitted to continue your training with the University as we are continuing to deliver this remotely.
For further information please visit the Furloughed apprentices – Apprenticeship Service Support webpage.
