8 Step Guide to Differentiate Your Apprenticeship Offer, May 2017

The new structure of apprenticeships introduces flexibility to the roles of the employer and provider, the design of on-programme training and therefore, the price of delivery. In this new system, how will providers differentiate their offer to engage employers, attract recruits and ensure a quality experience? The City & Guilds “quality apprenticeships model” has been developed with employers and defines the quality that is derived from, the job role content, on-the-job training, off-the-job training and the staff involved; all leading to good results in end-point assessment.

This webinar is for all those involved in developing and delivering apprenticeships and will be led by Caroline Roberts – City & guilds, Head of Policy.
