Employers applaud Government’s flagship apprenticeship programme
The government’s Get In, Go Far apprenticeship campaign has received very positive feedback from employers and industry experts alike, a recent news report on the matter was able to reveal.
This impressive scheme is the third phase of a programme that was launched in October 2013 and aims to create 40 apprenticeship standards in conjunction with 200 UK employers within the engineering, hospitality and legal professions, among others.
Michael Walby, director of professional qualification training at KPMG, called policy-makers’ role in empowering employers to build vocational training “vital”. He also praised the programme for setting clear standards for apprentices.
“It defines the knowledge, skills and behaviours that are required by a fully competent apprentice and provides a framework for apprentices that lead to valuable, transferable qualifications, relevant for employers,” he said.
UK firms interested in offering up apprenticeship positions should also implement extensive workforce management solutions, that will help them provide a superior level of support for these inexperienced workers, and this is specifically where Tensor plc can put its extensive experience to very good use.
