The role of the employer in supporting on-the-job learning is crucial to the success of the apprenticeship. Many employers (and their staff) are new to the world of apprenticeships, and look to providers for support.

So what guidance should you give as the provider? How can you best support employers to provide high quality support and mentoring for on-the-job learning?

Drawn from our work with employers and 1,000 apprenticeship providers, these webinars will take you through:

  • who employers can use as a mentor in apprenticeships
  • the difference between mentoring and line management
  • the mentor’s role at different stages of the apprenticeship journey
  • providing the right level of support to mentors up-front
  • how mentors can help to develop apprentices’ knowledge, skills and behaviours
  • examples of effective practice, and actions you can take

This two-part webinar takes place on Tues, 17 March 2020 at 09.30-10.30 and 12.30-1.30. Can’t make the date / times? Book anyway and we’ll send you the full recordings and materials.

You can book onto the series for £95 (+VAT). If you have several staff who would benefit, let us know and we’ll send you details of the most cost effective way of accessing the series.

Who is this webinar for?

For managers, business development, curriculum and front-line staff involved in apprenticeship training.
