Preparing to deliver Traineeships ready for February 2021
Intensive CPD programme
Monday 11 January – if you’ve submitted a bid to deliver the government’s £65m Traineeship programme, this is when you will hear if you have been successful. That leaves you just three weeks to set-up and start your programme.
It’s high stakes. If providers underperform in the first six months (starting 1 Feb), it will likely impact on your ability to secure a future allocation from July 2021.
That’s why – starting in January – we‘re hosting a series of intensive CPD sessions to give you practical guidance, tools and confidence to establish and grow your Traineeship offer.
Led by a top team of Traineeship specialists, the programme will include 5x 2hr interactive sessions, taking you through the different areas you will need to consider:
1. Designing an effective curriculum and programme of learning – (Thursday 14 Jan – 2-4pm)
2. Strategies to establish and grow your engagement with employers – (Monday 18 Jan – 10-12pm)
3. Assessing learner needs and supporting learners on-programme – (Thursday 21 Jan – 10-12pm)
4. Funding and compliance – having the right systems and process in place – (Wednesday 27 Jan – 2-4pm)
5. Assessing and improving the quality of your provision – Week commencing 29th March (To be scheduled / agreed with all delegates during programme)
Each session will be practical and interactive, with a limited number of delegates. You will come away with models, tools and actions to help you quickly develop a high-quality programme.
Securing a place
With timescales so tight in January, we are asking providers to commit now, so the content and materials can be developed. If you are not successful in securing a Traineeship contract, we will provide a full refund.
With the need to deliver at least £250,000 of Traineeship provision in six months, and the longer-term opportunities it could bring, it is worth investing in to get it right.
The cost of the CPD programme is £695+vat. This includes 10 hours of online interactive training, materials, tools and support.
Secure your place with a £250 + VAT deposit. Payable online.
If you have several staff who would benefit from joining the sessions, do contact us and we’ll let you know the most cost-effective way of accessing the support.
Who is this for?
This offer is open to all who have applied to deliver the expanded 19-24 Traineeship programme. It is also open to those who currently deliver Traineeships, who would like to grow and improve their provision.
