Apprenticeships can be transformative for learners, offering real work experience alongside training to develop the right skills for their chosen field. Schools use apprenticeships to support recruitment, retention, succession and progression planning. Many have told us they benefit from an injection of fresh ideas and the opportunity to nurture talented staff, familiar with their own school’s values.
Our dedicated and experienced team can support apprenticeships in schools at every stage, from planning the roles, identifying the right candidates, onto securing progression. ApprenticeshipsPLUS Programmes are available for a wide range of levels and roles with specialist courses designed specifically for the school workforce.
ApprenticeshipsPLUS for Schools
The ApprenticeshipsPLUS team work closely with school leaders to ensure learning opportunities are closely tailored to meet the needs of both learners and schools. Throughout our induction, work experience and apprenticeships, we provide fantastic wraparound support and ensure additional needs are identified early and addressed, so that learners progress well and achieve their potential.
The PLUS in ApprenticeshipsPLUS represents the additional support and enrichment opportunities provided for apprentices alongside their course, at no additional cost to schools. We provide regular mentor network meetings for students and their mentors. These facilitated sessions enable mentors and mentees to find effective ways of undertaking their work and study. They provide training for mentors to clarify their role in supporting students through end-point assessment.
ApprenticeshipsPLUS is uniquely placed in Inclusion, Learning and Achievement, and has used expertise from Royal Greenwich and third sector partners to design general and specialised pathways. This provides bespoke learning to meet the needs of schools, enabling apprentices to tailor their learning around their chosen careers and personal passions, meaning they are well equipped and motivated to perform their roles.
