Welcome to The Open University’s Apprenticeships Knowledge and Insights Hub.

Here you’ll find a wealth of invaluable information to help your organisation benefit from the planned apprenticeship reforms and the upcoming Apprenticeship Levy in 2017.

There’s a great deal of interest around the subject, but as of yet, details have been in short supply. That’s why we’ve created dedicated levy pages, so your organisation can navigate the changing face of apprenticeships, and maximise the opportunities offered by this upcoming scheme.

Our apprenticeships blog also offers relevant and regularly updated levy and apprenticeship-based articles, to help private, public and third-sector organisations such as yours.

And that’s not all. From this central hub, you can directly access the tailored higher and degree apprenticeship programmes that we offer here at The Open University.

Press release: The Open University and KPMG launch joint apprenticeships scheme. Find out how we're working together to support employers' skills needs and deliver national apprenticeship programmes.
