Information about teaching and assessment arrangements for students on degree apprenticeships, as well as changes to employment arrangements for all those affected.

Degree Apprenticeships

Plus Icon Is teaching still being delivered as timetabled?

In order to reduce unnecessary social contact, your School has moved to blended learning. 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.

Plus Icon My organisation has reduced my hours at work so I’m now part time. Can I continue with my apprenticeship?

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.

Plus Icon My organisation requires me to work full time and I cannot continue with 20% off the job training. What should I do?

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.

Plus Icon What if my contract is due to end before my End Point Assessment is scheduled?

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.

Plus Icon My employer has changed my role to manage my organisation's response to coronavirus (Covid-19) Can I carry on studying?

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.

Plus Icon My organisation has furloughed me. How does this affect my 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. If the apprentice cannot continue with their apprenticeship training, you must take a break in learning.

For further information please visit the Furloughed apprentices – Apprenticeship Service Support webpage.

Plus Icon I have been made redundant or think I am at risk of being made redundant

If you have been notified by your employer that you are being made redundant or think you are at risk of redundancy please speak with the apprenticeship team who will be able to provide advice and guidance. The government has also created the Redundancy Support Service for Apprentices to speak with them call 08000 150 400.

Plus Icon I am unable to complete my Functional Skills due to the current situation

The functional skills requirements for apprenticeships have temporarily changed because of the coronavirus outbreak. Please call the apprenticeship team for further information and guidance.

Plus Icon I am due to take my end point assessment will this be affected?

There may be changes to your end-point assessment because of the coronavirus outbreak. Your end-point assessment organisation may need to:
•    assess you remotely
•    reschedule your assessment
Please contact the apprenticeship team to discuss further, especially if you feel you cannot take your assessment because of the coronavirus outbreak.

You can still take your end-point assessment if you’ve been furloughed or made redundant when you have less than 6 months remaining on your apprenticeship
