SDN sessions: The backbone of effective apprenticeship training

In March, SDN are hosting three sessions which form the backbone of effective apprenticeship training – curriculum design, progress monitoring and preparing apprentices for end-point assessment.

In each of these sessions, we’ll be setting out practical models and approaches you can use, drawn from our work with over 5,000 apprenticeship trainers.

If you have several staff who would benefit, or want to attend more than one event, do drop us a line and we will let you know the most cost-effective way of accessing the support.

Webinar:  Masterclass in apprenticeship curriculum design
Thurs, 4 March (1.00-4.30pm)

Taking you through a step-by-step example of how to deconstruct a standard and build the curriculum from the top down:

  • The principles of good-quality curriculum design
  • A practical step-by-step worked example:
    1. Deconstructing the standard and amplifying the KSBs
    2. Articulating the learning outcomes, deciding on the learning methods and building in other components
    3. Shaping this into ‘episodes of learning’ as part of a Scheme of Work
    4. Translating the Scheme of Work into an Individual Learning Plan which takes both the apprentice’s prior learning and employer requirements into account
  • Practical tips on how to adjust the curriculum and training plan “mid-flight” during the programme and monitor the progress of your apprentices
