In this episode of The Institute talks, we talk about the new guidance created by our apprentice panel, ‘raising the standards’.

In the podcast, our host Jonathan Mitchell, Deputy Director at the Institute was joined by Jamilah Simpson, former digital marketing apprentice at Google, Dillion Jones, electrician apprentice at Derry Building Service and Amelia Russell, former business administration apprentice at the Institute.

Launched by the Institute’s apprentice panel, the ‘raising the stands’ guidance sets out what to expect during an apprenticeship, welfare and wellbeing considerations, and recommendations for how training programmes can be tailored to give apprentices the best possible experience.

The guidance focuses on the following five topics:

  • The induction process
  • The partnership between the apprentice, training provider, employers, and also end point assessment organisation
  • Training
  • End-point assessment preparation
  • Apprentice welfare and wellbeing

Jamilah Simpson said:

“We hope that the guide will benefit the apprentices, employers and the training providers to improve apprentice experience and give guidance to those within the apprenticeship landscape. We also hope that it will be accessible to everyone who wants and needs it, and so we want it to reach the widest possible audience across UK. And hopefully maybe even beyond that.”
