Learn more about a cross-Europe programme that makes it easier for training providers and smaller companies to work together to develop quality apprenticeships.
Welcome to the new edition of Vocational Education Exchange. Our new theme is on apprenticeships. We have some case studies and articles covering apprenticeship developments across the United Kingdom.
We see how slightly different schemes across the UK achieve similar results by providing employers with the skilled staff they need to be effective. There are articles on how working with a professional sports organisation has resulted in students joining as employees, how a female apprentice in the construction industry has won an award, and how a college in the north of England has adapted to meet the needs of employers. We also have an article on improving apprenticeship development across Europe.
We hope this will provide you with some ideas and talking points. As always, please let us know what you think.
