Abstract

This paper explores curriculum innovation via the development of new management education at a UK university, in the form of a Degree Apprenticeship. Curriculum development is rarely a smooth process where different departments or faculties are involved (Murray & Nallaya, 2016) given the nature of interpersonal relationships (Six & Skinner, 2010; Dickinson & Glasby, 2010; Lupton et al, 2001). This new curriculum is the result of innovative new partnerships, both internally across different faculties and externally with a professional body and a range of employers. In exploring this new development, the study presents a view of an under-researched topic - the development of the UK's new hybrid qualifications, which offer a full undergraduate degree plus an Apprenticeship / Professional Award. Offering a fresh approach to workintegrated learning, the apprenticeship involves both theory and practice based around the apprentice’s workplace –encompassing “all and any learning that is situated in the workplace or arising directly out of workplace concerns” (Lester and Costley, 2010). Universities UK report numbers growing at a positive rate, "with an estimated 1,500-2,000 due to start in 2016 across 40 universities." (O'Malley, 2016).
