Help shape the next phase of the Apprenticeship Workforce Development (AWD) Programme

Posted on behalf of AELP.

The first phase of the AWD programme launched in 2021 to support staff at all levels and roles delivering apprenticeships across Further and Higher Education settings. This work is a key activity the Department for Education (DfE) has commissioned to support the drive in quality improvement across apprenticeships and is a key part of their quality strategy.

The Education and Training Foundation (ETF), in partnership with the Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP), Association of Colleges (AoC), Strategic Development Network (SDN), and University Vocational Awards Council (UVAC), and supported by SQW as an independent evaluation partner, is delivering the next phase of the AWD programme. The programme will provide industry-relevant Continuous Professional Development (CPD) to apprenticeship providers, employers and their workforces to ensure its training needs are met to enable the delivery of high-quality teaching and training that equips apprentices with the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed for industry-specific roles.

We’d like to invite you to take part in this sector-wide survey to have your say in the design and delivery of the DfE-funded AWD programme offer. This is a vital opportunity for you to help determine what training resources and support will be provided to apprenticeship providers, employers, and their workforces over the coming years. Your participation will help ensure that the sector’s training needs are met, so that we can deliver the highest-quality teaching and training for all apprentices.

We would also like to invite you to take part in a focus group to share your experience of delivering, or supporting the delivery of, apprenticeships in more detail. Your participation and valued insights will help us design and develop CPD resources that meet the sector’s training needs. If you would like to express your interest in attending a focus group, between now and February 2023, please either complete your details when prompted during the survey, or email
