18 July 2016

As part of the second phase of the Future Apprenticeships programme, commissioned by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF), the Future Apprenticeships team are offering a package of support designed to address the need for systems and processes to be put in place to manage the flow of information, contracts and funding.The support package is made up of two workshops which will consider the structures, processes, systems and skills providers already have in place and will reflect on the organisational changes needed to be ready to begin delivery of apprenticeship standards. This will include looking at organisation and team structures, skills requirements, back office systems, job roles, job descriptions, policies and processes. Workshop 1 will be held in September 2016 and Workshop 2 will be held in January/February 2017 (delegates will be expected to attend both workshops).
