Degree or Degree Apprenticeship? Which should you choose?

Oct 02, 2018
Andreas Beckwith
University was once seen as the only path for skilled employment, but now there are more options available, including degree apprenticeships, which offer a way into industry, combining classroom learning with practical experiences, and apprenticeship students get a degree out of it at the end. Both university and degree apprenticeships have comparative advantages, and which one is better depends on the person in question.

Creating a Community of Practice: How can you apply theory to practice?

Feb 09, 2017
Trevor Russell
Learning has been perceived historically as something achieved as individuals (Armitage et al, 2002) reflecting observed changes in behaviour however, Lave & Wenger’s ideas (1991) on learning as something undertaken within a community has challenged that paradigm. Lave & Wenger’s premise was built upon the idea that people who gather together within a shared domain of interest, for example their workplace, also will learn together. They will do this because they are interested in doing their job more effectively and improving their performance of their role, both individually and collectively.
