Setting Up An Apprentice Program : It’s Really Not That Hard

27th February 2019
We Work, Marylebone, London

<< All Events


In 2015, the government set a target to have 3 million new apprentices by 2020. The levy was introduced in April 2017, to raise £3bn a year to fund better training. In most cases, the far-reaching benefits apprenticeships can offer businesses is being overshadowed by difficulties in implementing. Adoption has been lower than anticipated which, to some extent, is not surprising; this is on the surface a completely different and regulated talent stream.

But, it doesn’t need to be difficult. At this event, we’ll share the experiences of apprentices, employers and line managers, reflecting on their individual pain points, how potential can be measured in young apprentices and where the value lies for different stakeholders to give a clear idea of how to implement a successful program.


What to expect from the day:

- Making sense of apprenticeships
- Apprentices vs. Graduates: what’s the difference from an employer perspective?
- How to go about setting up an apprenticeship programme
- How to measure potential in young apprentices, outside of academics and work
- What characteristics are employers looking for? 
- What does a world-class apprenticeship programme look like?
- Changes in funding bands
