The AGS webinar on The Development of a Degree Apprenticeship took place on 23rd March 2022. 248 people registered to attend the webinar and 90% of attendees would recommend the webinar.

This webinar saw Dr Nick Koor (Reader in Geological Engineering, University of Portsmouth (School of the Environment, Geography and Geoscience)) and Paul Roberts (Regional Director at AECOM) discuss the worrying trend of how the number of students enrolling on Geoscience courses at university has declined over the past six years. The webinar was chaired by AGS Chair, Sally Hudson.

The event also covered the development of a Degree Apprenticeship in Geoscience. This was spearheaded by UGUK at a kick-off meeting in November 2021. A Trailblazer Group for the Degree Apprenticeship in Geoscience has now been formed and is being chaired by Paul Roberts. The group are currently in the occupation proposal stage, with the course is likely to start in 2024.
