BAME Into the AMRC

Monday 5th October 2020

Higher Degree Apprenticeships (HDA) have been embraced by universities and employers nationwide, however there is still a lack of understanding from parents/carers about the pathway routes into degree apprenticeships and their long term benefits. We also know from our research that this is true for many Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) young people and their parents/carers.

Therefore, in partnership with The University of Sheffield, HeppSY organised a trip for young BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) students to visit the University of Sheffield AMRC Training Centre to find out more about degree apprenticeships. The aim of the trip was to help young people gain knowledge into what it is like to be an Engineering Apprentice, and feel more confident about their Post-16 choices and pathways when considering degree apprenticeships as a higher education option.
