Technical Skills

Alliance universities are leaders in using their close relationships with industry partners and employers to collaborate on developing curriculum and delivering practical, skills-led learning with real-world experience and on-the-job training. These partnerships produce graduates that have the skills and knowledge to achieve and add value to industry and the professions; equipped with the skills our economy will need for the future.

Alliance universities are pioneers in working with employers to develop flexible, innovative higher technical provision such as degree apprenticeships in key growth areas. We work in partnership with further education colleges –such partnerships have long histories in Alliance universities – to ensure a local seamless pathway of employer responsive education and training, which learners can access throughout their lives.

We are striving for a more accessible and flexible post-18 education system to allow people to learn and upskill throughout their lives and ensure the UK keeps up with the global pace of innovation post-Brexit.
