Updated version of the training providers’ guide to digital apprenticeships
The free Digital Apprenticeship Provider Guide, first published in March this year, has been fully revised and now includes a new section on best practice for preparing apprentices for end-point assessment.
Digital apprentice steps up during cyber-attacks
The new digital apprenticeship frameworks give bright young people the opportunity to add value and benefit their employers from early on in their apprenticeships. Find out more about Jack's experience with the NHS.
My digital apprenticeship – "What I've learnt"
In this short film, we asked digital apprentices to share what they've learnt during their apprenticeship. They all work in different jobs for different big-name companies, but they've all loved the experience and how transformative it has been.
- Encourage more employers to recruit more apprentices
- Increase the quality of apprenticeships by employers sharing best practice and learning from each other
- Employers with experience of apprenticeships will share best practice to help them continuously improve
- Employers new to apprenticeships will be able to learn from peers
- Employers who don’t yet take apprentices will be able to talk to those who do
- Identified key barriers to employers recruiting apprentices: the strongest to emerge was that employers think taking young people is risky and expensive
- Identified key ways of overcoming the barriers: the most important was employers sharing their experience of apprenticeships, which clearly show that the benefits far outweigh the costs
- We have started work on a strategy to disseminate the key messages to the key audiences
