Learning and Work Institute is running a series of webinars to support the dissemination and exchange of knowledge on effective practice in pre-apprenticeships.
Pre-apprenticeship programmes are targeted at young people aged 16-24 where the main aim is progression to an apprenticeship. Such programmes prepare young people for apprenticeships by providing a combination of vocational training and hands-on experience. Our work, with the support of J.P. Morgan, aims to promote best practice in the delivery of pre-apprenticeship programmes across the world.
The interactive webinars will offer training and insight to providers about how to develop key aspects of pre-apprenticeship provision, to secure positive outcomes for young people.
Pre-apprenticeship programmes aim to support young people to develop the skills and competencies that employers require. Effective pre-apprenticeship programmes can save employers resources on recruiting and training new employees as young people coming from a pre-apprenticeship programme should arrive with a better understanding of the roles and responsibilities they might undertake. To ensure good quality programmes that benefit young people and employers alike, employers should be a key partner for programme development.
This interactive webinar will provide guidance and good practice examples on how to engage employers in programme development and delivery, presenting both pre-apprenticeship provider and employer perspectives.
