Introducing our new curriculum, off-the-job training, safeguarding and Prevent, and our employer survey.
In Training Now we are committed to providing effective employer engagement.
That’s why Luke Hall and Laura Lawson will be visiting your team meetings to further advertise Training Now’s offer, answer questions and raise awareness of important aspects of apprenticeship and funded learning.
Introducing the new curriculum
Our curriculum is your curriculum!
Training Now has completed updating the curriculum outlines for our apprenticeship programmes.
Our main focus is to be employer-led so when you are meeting with your apprentices and their teaching and learning coaches please communicate anything additional learning you would like your apprentices to undertake, above and beyond the criteria already set, that you would like to be included into the programme.
The purpose of the apprenticeship programme is to ensure a positive impact on your staff development and subsequently the service that you are able to offer.
Thank you for taking the time to speak to me in the recent survey I conducted to measure the impact of apprenticeship learning on your services and understand what we need to do to make sure that we mould our learning programmes on what you need to achieve positive outcomes in your services.
20% Off-the-Job Training
20% off the job training is a fundamental aspect of apprenticeship learning.
Many activities can count as 20%. Staff meetings can be counted as 20% off the job learning so long as there is an activity conducted within the meeting.
Find a full list of activities that can be counted as 20% off the job learning.
Each month now you will need to write a witness testimony regarding the 20% off the job learning your apprentices have completed, you will also need to submit the evidence with the testimony.
If you have any questions regarding this please contact the Apprenticeship Manager Lauren Cleever for further details.
Safeguarding and Prevent
The UK Terrorism threat level has been lowered to Substantial. This means an attack is likely rather than highly likely.
However the festive period is fast approaching and, coupled with an election, our towns and cities will be extremely busy. So the government is appealing to everyone to please remain vigilant and if you see something that doesn’t seem right, act and contact police. In an emergency always call 999.
If you have any concerns regarding any aspect of the safety and/or wellbeing of your apprentices or staff on short courses please contact a member of the safeguarding team for Training Now:
Thank you all for speaking with me recently regarding your apprentices end dates and progression.
Employer engagement is paramount to Training Now so please do keep us apprised of your ideas, questions and feedback, helping us to shape the service that we provide to you.
It was fantastic to hear so many testimonies regarding the positive impact that the apprenticeship programme has had on those who have achieved their apprenticeships. Many of you expressed that staff have grown in confidence and been able take on new tasks and responsibilities since completing their apprenticeship with some achievers going on to higher positions within the company and receiving promotions.
