Two Million Apprentices – Realistic or Unattainable?
When flicking through national newspapers I notice that apprenticeships are taking up lots of column inches. They're certainly newsworthy considering apprenticeships were key in proposals for educational reform during the recent political conferences. Having secured an important role as a successful education pathway, it is vital that apprenticeships build on this success. But, in an increasingly competitive climate, how will this be achieved?
Higher Apprenticeships Take Talent to New Heights
The best businesses have the best people working in them. But in times of economic hardship, recruitment or development may not be a high priority for employers. So if you want to retain talent, why not produce it? We believe higher apprenticeships can address the demand for higher level skills and extend an employer’s reach to new pools of talent. We develop apprenticeships and standards with employers and have one of the largest remits of any standards-setting body or Sector Skills Council, representing approximately 10 million UK employees.
