Apprenticeships have been in the news in recent years as a solid alternative to the ‘flight path’ route to employment which suggests students go from GCSEs to A Levels, on to University and then into graduate-level jobs.
CareermapLive will be joined by top employers, national awarding organisations, and educationalists who will inspire and inform you so you can do the same with your pupils.
The way Apprenticeships work is evolving. Previously they were based on around 250 ‘Frameworks’; now, the government is developing between 600-800 ‘Apprenticeship Standards’ that will set out what Apprentices need to learn.
The Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers contains all organisations that have been approved to deliver Apprenticeship training. There are 3 types of training providers including main providers, employer providers and supporting providers.

Learning doesn’t stop just because you complete your degree or pass your final exam. Life is one massive learning curve, and the simple truth is that you can never know enough, but you can at least keep trying. Continuing Professional Development [CPD] is the training required to maintain a professional status after you have qualified.
