Apprenticeships Thought and Action Group

Apprenticeships are changing.  Our aim is to de-mystify, share ideas and inspire people who want to make a difference.  There are fantastic new opportunities for both your new recruits and existing staff, with no barriers on age, experience or prior qualification.   This shift is creating brilliant potential for you to improve employee engagement, by aligning quality apprenticeships with your core purpose and business strategy, from MBA equivalents, to digital professional to technical core skills.

Earlier this year we celebrated National Apprenticeship week with the launch of our work so far on the Engage for Success website, with tops tips, case studies, blogs, and video clips.

And if you missed our radio show you can listen to Kevin Cowley, Head of Apprenticeship Strategy and Delivery from the Home Office and Haleema Baker-Mir from Nestle share their experiences in Show #242: Apprenticeships are Changing.

There’s lots more in the pipeline and we’d love to hear from you. If you have ideas to share or you’d just like to find out more, come and join us.  Members of the group have connected with like-minded enthusiasts across all sectors who share a passion for innovation and engagement.

Apprenticeships – a Brave New World

Apprenticeships were new to […]
