023 Creating a Successful Apprenticeship Opportunity: The Apprenticeship Podcast with Michaela Reaney & Kate Temple-Brown

    • Management

Today, we are bringing together some of the information that we've been sharing in other episodes, and we’re going to talk about creating a successful apprenticeship. We are going to use the acronym SET that stands for Strategy, Engagement, and Training Provider, in order to help you create the most effective apprenticeship programme for your organisation. 
What You’ll Learn: 
- Why an Apprenticeship programme must link to your wider business goals and strategy
- How to think about Apprenticeships in terms of developing skills and behaviours rather than applying standards 
- Why it’s wise to invest time into engaging line managers and learners before and during an apprenticeship 
- Why it’s important to set engagement rules and expectations for an apprenticeship group
- How to effectively engage senior level managers and leaders in an apprenticeship programme
- How to choose your training provider based on what elements of a programme you can negotiate to the benefit of your organisation and learners 
So, when starting an apprenticeship programme in your organisation, be strategic and start with an end in mind. Spend time in conversations with line managers and learners, as well as with senior managers and leaders. Seek additional value and support from your training provider, and SET yourself up for creating a successful apprenticeship.
