Apprenticeship participation now stands at a record level with 509,400 apprenticeship starts in the 2015 to 2016 academic year. In addition, the introduction of the apprenticeship reform – or levy – and the target of three million apprenticeships by 2020 sees FE colleges facing greater challenges, including placing more focus on employers and employer relationships to attract business and secure funding. The reform also presents significant opportunities for FE colleges who need to stay informed and agile in order to make the most of the benefits that are available to them, including time and cost savings, increased student numbers and revenue.
The apprenticeship system can be complicated to navigate, from managing apprentices, courses and employers through to assessments, funding and much more. This is in addition to everyday college practises such as students hitting targets, teaching staff delivering outstanding results, while increasing efficiencies and becoming an impressive teaching and learning hub.
