New resources supporting public sector apprenticeships

26th July 2017

Top tips and case studies to help public sector organisations plan and develop their apprenticeship programmes have been launched by Learning and Work Institute.

Supported by the Department for Education, the resources provide valuable information for public sector organisations when planning their response to the public sector apprenticeships target and the introduction of the apprenticeship levy.

The resources include case studies and tips from public sector organisations on how apprenticeships have already contributed to their organisation, and how they intend to respond to the target. The case studies provide useful ideas and inspiration based on existing experiences, approaches taken and the benefits realised for organisations, apprentices and service users.

Dr Fiona Aldridge, Assistant Director for Research and Development at Learning and Work Institute, said:

“As a key mechanism for achieving the Government’s target of three million apprenticeship starts by 2020, and at a time of increased budget constraints for the public sector, it is crucial the apprenticeship levy and public sector target are utilised effectively to help the sector meet its objectives and deliver high quality services.

“In drawing on the experience of other public sector employers, these resources provide useful examples and tips for organisations at different stages of their apprenticeship journeys that can help ongoing planning and improvement.”
