Manager’s Guide to Apprenticeships – Training across England

Manager’s Guide to Apprenticeships – Training across England
Creative & Cultural Skills understands that managers who are new to apprenticeships may have lots of questions about them.

Following the publication of the Manager’s Guide to Apprenticeships, written in partnership with Acas, Creative & Cultural Skills have introduced a half day training session to accompany this.
The session, which lasts for 4 hours (including breaks), walks those who are new to managing apprentices, or those who wish to brush up on the dos and don’ts, through the following:

  • Understanding apprenticeships – what they are/aren’t, the responsibilities of the employer versus the training provider, apprenticeship standards and how to select the most appropriate one for your role
  • Recruiting apprentices – things to consider when reaching out to those who may be new to the world of work: job descriptions, shortlisting, best practice approaches to recruitment and interview
  • Working with young people, safeguarding and working with training providers – induction, 1:1s, safeguarding for apprentices, and how to work with training providers including quality indicators

Please note that whilst the content of the training is relevant for anyone who is new to employing and/or managing apprentices, the session includes content that is more focused on how to support new entrants through apprenticeships, rather than using apprenticeships to up-skill existing staff.
