Whether you are an Employer Provider or a Main Provider, you may have had to recently redesign your apprenticeship delivery strategy. Like many other providers who deliver apprenticeships, the impact of Covid-19 has meant that you may have had to reduce your face-to-face delivery and find more creative ways for engaging with your apprentices. This may include delivering more online content or more virtual interaction. If this is the case, read our top tips for including on-line content as part of your program.
As an apprenticeship provider, you can include content that has been designed by industry experts to form part of your delivery program and count towards the 20% off the job requirements. We incur the costs of commissioning these specialists, so you don’t have to.
Online content can be accessed by the apprentice at a time that is convenient to them and also can be built into your wider delivery program at a time that is convenient for you.
The apprentice can even revisit any of the online content at any time throughout the entire apprenticeship, which means they can revise key learning points before applying the newly learned skill in the workplace.
Each apprenticeship route commissioned has different requirements and seeks to respond to differing needs; by using online content you have the option to create a bespoke apprenticeship offer according to the needs of the customer, business or the apprentice.
Blended delivery allows easy flex of the ‘learning pathway’ for the individual apprentice. If it is identified that an apprentice needs further support in a specific subject area, this can easily be added to their pathway from the vast amount of content that is currently available.
Ofsted requires that all training providers assess an individual’s prior learning before they start an apprenticeship to establish their baseline. A blended delivery model allows this information to be used to create a bespoke ‘learning pathway’ for the apprentice that will deliver transformational learning that delivers real growth and stretch.
Learning Pool has a reporting function attached to all content to demonstrate how much time the apprentice has engaged with that learning activity. This can be downloaded and evidenced as part of the requirement to achieve 20% off the job learning.
As a provider, once the content has been created, it can be built into your delivery plan and requires very little human intervention. This will free your delivery teams to increase their contact time with a greater number of apprentices’. Efficient use of blended delivery can increase your capacity to deliver apprenticeships by 100%.
Online content can easily be customized to reflect the vision and values of any provider. You can add content to reflect the ‘way we do things around here’.
As it’s online, it’s at any time of day or night, it can be made available to a wider audience thus increasing your reach.
At Learning Pool we already have a vast amount of content that is designed, available and mapped to the Apprenticeship Standards. Get in touch if you would like to find out more.
