How ready are you for apprenticeships

The Apprenticeship reforms of 2017 have placed new opportunities and challenges at the doors of universities, colleges and private providers. Are you ready for the new landscape arising from the presence of levy funding and the new higher-level apprenticeships?

Delivery of apprenticeships will take many providers into new and uncharted territory, placing demands on their internal systems and processes that may be challenging and unforeseen. Moving from traditional delivery modes to delivery via the 20% off-the-job training requirement will mean adjustments may need to be made and assumptions about what constitutes effective delivery will need to be revisited.

Putting together all the parts that are needed for effective apprenticeship delivery can be a challenge. But Jisc’s Apprenticeship Digital Delivery Review (ADDR) can help. Using the Jisc’s Apprenticeship Toolkit and the Ofsted Common Framework for Inspection as starting points, the review helps you identify, scope and plan to address the areas that need attention.

Working with people from across the organisation (learning technologists, course leaders, a librarian and  over the course of a full day with a range of key stakeholders across your organisation the review team will help you to:

  • Identify the key systems and processes that you will need for effective apprenticeship delivery
  • Explore any gaps in your current support for these areas
  • Prioritise items for improvement
  • Develop action plans to deliver the identified improvements

Following the workshop, the team will deliver a report based on the outcomes of the day with action points and pointers to further resources to help you be as prepared as possible.
