This week for Skills World, listen to Tom reporting from the frontline of skills delivery as he talks to award winning independent apprenticeship training provider, LDN Apprenticeships.
Founder and CEO, Simon Bozzoli, explains why he quit his day job in a further education college to establish a new company dedicated to finding pioneering ways of engaging quality employers and young people (16-24 year olds) in apprenticeships.
Find out what Simon said when Tom asked him what single change he would make to the apprenticeship system.
Listen to the Sales Director, James O’Donnell, (the man with the red sun glasses!) who talks about the unique Career Kick Starter days he regularly puts on for aspiring apprentices and company managers looking for talented workers.
Part of the secret sauce of the success of LDN Apprenticeships is a development tool called #EEWAP - Energy, Enthusiasm, Willingness to Learn, Ability to take Feedback & Propensity to take Action.
James explains in detail how #EEWAP works...
And finally, hear from the apprentice, Stefan Sayer.
After several failed attempts at finding a suitable apprenticeship placement, Stefan tells Tom how #EEWAP changed his life and how the IT company he now works for is worth billions of pounds.
An inspiring podcast, recorded for Skills World, to mark the 12th Anniversary of National Apprenticeship Week.
