Webinar series: Effective practice in pre-apprenticeship programmes

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.
