9 Employer Engagement – Selling Higher Apprenticeships Business Secretary Vince Cable said: “Through the Higher Apprenticeship Fund we can target sectors where skills shortages are threatening to choke off growth.” “They also help us break down the doors of professions that are not representative of the society in which we live. It cannot be right for example that only 4 per cent of registered commercial airline pilots are women.” Employers will benefit from world class, nationally accredited technical training delivered in the workplace NAS will focus its marketing and sales staff on new employers in our priority sectors. Promoting progression routes through to Higher Apprenticeships Additional support for up to 40,000 SMEs incentivised to recruit apprentices into their business for the first time (16-24year olds) – AGE initiative By August 2012, we expect to launch a new service standard for providers that deal with SMEs and a new employer toolkit Employer Ownership Pilot offers opportunities for employers to bid directly for funding to support their sector National Apprenticeship Service

10 Information, Advice and Guidance NAS Higher Apprenticeship pages are being updated By 2012 an Advice and Guidance agreement with the National Careers Service will be developed and implemented Revaluate the London progression trial and consider national roll out Marketing collateral developed by Higher Apprenticeship partners and NAS including web sites; podcasts; brochures; case studies etc., Inspiring the Future is a free service which allows people from all sectors and professions to work with state schools and colleges to help young people achieve their potential.
