From education to employment

AELP launches Apprenticeship delivery materials

The Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP) has launched a suite of professional development resources for Apprenticeship providers.

The resources include guides, tool-kits, staff training materials and videos, and were produced by 14 provider-led projects through the first phase of the Apprenticeship Staff Support Programme.

“In the context of a recovering economy, high youth unemployment and a general election round the corner, all political parties have made significant commitment to the Apprenticeship programme as the flagship route to gain skills and sustained employment,” said Paul Warner, AELP’s director of employment and skills.

The current Apprenticeship programme is highly successful and will continue to adapt in meeting the government’s drive to ‘put employers in the driving seat’.

“For Apprenticeships to continue to be a success and be adaptable in meeting the needs of learners and employers, it is important that practitioner support and resources are in place to help continually improve the quality of delivery. We’re confident that the high quality tools and materials we are launching today will have a significant impact in meeting this need.”
