Life Skills with Capgemini and Urban Synergy
CTK was delighted to launch a new initiative with Capgemini (a global leader in consulting, technology and outsourcing services) and Urban Synergy that will see over twenty CTK students go to a number of workshops aimed at helping them develop life skills and introducing them to degree apprenticeship opportunities. At the end of the initiative Capgemni hope to offer a number of CTK students a degree apprenticeship.
A degree apprenticeship combines full-time paid work and part-time university to offer candidates the opportunity to gain a full Bachelors or Master’s degree while partaking in practical, on-the-job training. They were launched by the government in 2015, and are studied over the course of one to six years. There are many benefits to degree apprenticeships. As well as holding employment status and receiving a wage throughout the course, an apprentice’s tuition fees and training costs are settled between their education institution and employer.
