Professor Bill Lucas’ three point plan to improve the quality of Apprenticeships

Professor Bill Lucas from the Centre for Real World-Learning discusses growing Apprenticeships through increasing quality:

Lucas details best practices from Apprenticeship programmes in other countries, teaching methods that work and pedagogy.

He also sets out a three point plan to help increase the volume of learners on Apprenticeship programmes:

  • Point 1: Focus on which learning methods work for which Apprenticeships and why
  • Pont 2: Transform the individual learning plan into a formative document of progress for the Apprenticeship
  • Point 3: Whilst it is great that Apprenticeships will have a protected name, we should be more ambitious with what we can achieve through the Apprenticeship pathway.

According to Lucas, there will be an increase in Apprenticeship quality and numbers in one year if this plan is followed.
