A new degree apprenticeship will help open-up opportunities for trainees in materials science across the UK. After two years in development, the Materials Science Technologist (Level 6) Degree Apprenticeship is now approved and ready for delivery.
A new degree apprenticeship targeting the next generation of materials scientists and engineers has been agreed. Students could be starting the Materials Science Technologist programme as soon as September 2019.
The scale of support for a degree apprenticeship centred around training the next generation of materials scientists and engineers has helped achieve a positive outcome for the proposal.
Two leading universities have pledged support for a next generation training programme, designed to meet the needs of the materials scientists and engineers of the future.
Plans to develop a Degree Apprenticeship to bridge a skills gap in materials science and engineering have taken a significant step forward.
Employers are invited to contribute to a proposed training programme which will draw on industry perspective to shape a new generation of materials scientists.
