Launched by Bolt and Ingredient Films, FE Spotlight and FE Insights are the first free video series to support the apprenticeships sector.

Alex Lockey, Director of recruitment company Bolt, and Nathan Carey, Director of training and apprenticeship video production outfit Ingredient Films, have joined forces to launch two free video series that provide insight, practical advice and opinion on the world of apprenticeships.

Meeting a host of current issues head on, FE Spotlight and FE Insights cover a range of topics that are relevant for those working in the FE and apprenticeships sector.

The key contributors for the next few weeks are include Steve Lawrence, Adam Sloan, Lindsay McCurdy, Susanna Lawson, Gavin Freed, Julie Weekes and Angela Middleton.

Alex Lockey, founder of Bolt, said:

“I felt there was a real gap of quality video content that educators working in apprenticeships would find useful. We have our finger on the pulse of the market so wanted to invest in producing value adding to help educate and support those working in what is an important but tumultuous sector at times.”

Contributors included Lindsay McCurdy, who speaks passionately about apprenticeships.

She said of the project:

“It was a priviledge to be involved in this project which showcases how video technology at its best can deliver the apprenticeship message”

Nathan, producer and director of both series, said:

“For us getting involved in this project not only allows us to give something back but also showcase what we do in terms of video production. With the move to Standards and the introduction of the levy, practitioners in this sector could do with all the support they can get. “
