What apprenticeship training providers need most during the Coronavirus crisis.
The Coronavirus pandemic is having significant impacts on FE and Skills providers and their learners, but particularly on apprenticeship training providers.
Whilst a range of support packages for grant funded providers of 16-18 and adult learner education provision have been announced, it appears that very little has so far been done to alleviate risks to the finances of independent training providers who deliver the majority of apprenticeship and work-based training. To avoid furloughing or laying off staff that would have been involved in the delivery of apprenticeship training, providers will need to have some certainty over profile payments or payments in advance of need. Without these and other asks, many providers will go out of business and put the future of apprenticeships in the UK at risk, with negative impacts on skill development and productivity.
This webinar, hosted by Beej Kaczmarczyk, will look at some of the measures that have been introduced to support the provider network during this crisis, and consider what needs to be done to ensure the survival of apprenticeship providers, including FE colleges with substantial apprenticeship provision.
It will provide participants with the opportunity to share ideas on how best to plan ahead and will be followed by more interactive sessions on how to convert these ideas into actions with impact, e.g. local collaborative planning strategies, resource sharing, online learning through mobile technology.
