Between 2008-09 and 2012-13, the number of people starting apprenticeships rose from 239,900 to 510,200, a staggering 113% increase. At the same time, the breadth of apprenticeships available to school leavers (and others) has expanded rapidly, meaning that the traditional view of apprenticeships – manual trades, in the main – has become outdated.
Higher apprenticeships, degree apprenticeships and a multitude of new skill areas have given school leavers more choice than they’ve had for years, but – along with the mire of apprentice funding – the landscape has become ever more complicated for employers.
This training course will equip you with the knowledge that you need to be able to establish a new apprenticeship programme, scale up an existing programme or re-focus your programme for excellence.
Four key things you will learn on this course:
Understand why innovation is so important and how it can be best supported
Understand how HR can play a major role in making organisations more innovative
Have considered a range of opportunities for making HR itself more innovative and how these could be applied to your own organisation
Have planned how HR can become more innovative itself to support both business and HR innovation agendas within your organisation
- Director, VP or manager of HR, talent management, recruiting, learning, organisation development etc
- HR business partner or HR practitioner, wanting to contribute more broadly to the innovation agenda
- Business leader, with responsibility for talent management
