At our roundtable with Policy Exchange yesterday, the Skills Minister, Nick Boles, set out a thorough and clear set of reforms he is driving forward to ensure that the 3million apprenticeship target is met through high quality. He rightly says that the levy is a game-changer and I share his excitement about how this will draw in employers who now have to invest in apprenticeship training, many for the first time.
Gday Paul, We have been tackling this same issue downunder in Australia. We in partnership with another regional Apprentice & Trainee services provider created a quality model and a supporting whitepaper on how to improve the quality outcomes of Apprentices and trainees to create a better, more productive Australia. The link to the model and the PDF whitepaper for downloading can be found here: http://www.atc-midwest.com.au/quality-outcome-model if you are interested. Cheers! Dave Clare, GM ATC Midwest
