Training Programme for Apprenticeship


I was wondering if any one can help. The company is hoping to take on some apprentices this year and I have been asked to draw up a training programme for the 4 yrs. I have the areas but I am at a loss of how to lay this out etc,. Any help would be greatfully received. Helen

  1. Our Solution
    Hi Helen,
    Helen I went through this a couple of years ago and found that the best solution for us was to sponsor apprentices through an external training company. We currently have apprentices in Scotland, Manchester, Rochester, Avonmouth and Merthyr Tydfil all sponsored by us but employed by the Brunel Training Group [BTG]. We worked with BTG to get the content right – but it takes out all of the admin of employment and tracking etc. I believe that BTG are the UK’s biggest employer and trainer of apprentices.
    Hope this helps – please get in touch if you wish to discuss.

  2. Speak to your LSC

    Your local Learning and Skills Council will help you get in touch with suitable training providers for your occupational area. Providers work with employers to ensure that training programmes are relevant and meet national qualification standards. You can check up on the suitability of providers by reading their inspection reports from the Adult Learning Inspectorate,

  3. A fresh approach To Apprenticeship Training
    In my previous company we piloted a new approach to the challenge of training & retaining our apprentices. We employed the services of a company called Skills 1st, their approach was to take care of all administration, employment and training needs. This service included a selection process to select the most suitable candidates once selected each apprentice would receive a structed training program which included college placement etc. The real strength of the scheme was that each apprentice was appointed a mentor to manage the realtionship between client and apprentice. This guaranted effective communications both onsite and the training department. please feel to mail me to expand
