Description Building on best practice, the project focuses on securing and further developing employer involvement, in particular SME’s in apprentice delivery; and supporting staff working in the sector to engage effectively with employers. This will be achieved through: The delivery of workshops, underpinned by the production an electronic ‘tool-kit and ‘expert’ adviser support to Apprentice employer engagement practitioners in the London area; The project acting as an ‘Academy’ for the employer engagement function, with ‘graduates’ receiving formal CPD recognition through certification; Dissemination by the ‘graduates’ utilising local networks and a ‘hub; and ‘spoke’ approach to the wider sector, with the ongoing support of ‘expert’ advisers and on-line/physical resources. Supporting the development of ‘locality’ specific apprenticeship partnership models, underpinned by the production of capacity building resources (an electronic ‘toolkit’).
Outputs June - September 2014 1. Employer Engagement ‘Electronic’ Tool-Kit: containing CPD resources to help Apprentice staff involved in the employer engagement function to effectively engage with employers.

November During October / November 2014 Direct participants/ ‘graduates’ of the workshops / ‘Academy’ will deliver to practitioners within their own networks.

Outcomes for staff Toolkits will enable staff to develop the capacity and competencies needed to effectively engage with employers. We will undertake pre and post support assessment / survey and telephone follow up with staff accessing the resources (see below on delivering / dissemination) in order to capture these development outcomes. Workshops will enable key staff to deliver and embed the ‘tool-kits’ within their own networks – leading to the wider workforce developing the capacity and competencies needed to effectively engage with employers.
