Event description


A major practitioner-led programme is being launched, providing grants for 10 collaborative projects to investigate outstanding teaching, learning and assessment of apprenticeship standards.

These grants will give practitioners space to explore specific changes to their role / practice and what outstanding looks like.

The full prospectus and grant application process will go live on Monday, 2nd April.

This free Briefing and Networking event (London) is being hosted for those interested in running (or being involved in) a collaborative project. The event will:

    • give an overview of the programme / grant application process
    • set out the kind of projects ETF are looking for
    • provide space for delegates to network and explore potential collaborative project ideas together

Who can attend?

    • Any practitioner / provider currently delivering government-funded apprenticeships (training providers and End-Point Assessment Organisations)
    • We particularly welcome interest from those already delivering apprenticeship standards

Please note, places are limited - we can only allow one person to attend per organisation. Places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis

About the programme / collaborative projects

Delivering apprenticeship standards in future will require a significant shift in the way teaching, learning and assessment is approached.

Funded by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF), the programme is a real opportunity for practitioners to pioneer and set out what outstanding looks like in the new approach to apprenticeship delivery.

The programme, overseen by the Strategic Development Network (SDN), will commission 10 grant-funded collaborative projects, focusing on areas of practice that sit under the following themes:

    1. Collaborative approach to teaching/training, learning and assessment between providers and employers
    2. Curriculum development based on the new standards
    3. Monitoring and assessing the progress of the apprentice
    4. Outstanding technical pedagogy in apprenticeship delivery

ETF are looking for a wide variety of apprenticeship providers and practitioners to be involved – in particular, those already delivery apprenticeship standards.

Each project group will consist of at least 10 practitioners from a range of apprenticeship provider types (and/or end-point assessment organisations). Projects will take place between May 2018 and January 2019 and each one will be assigned a mentor to guide them through the research process. The research questions and methods set by each group will be precise and robust, leading to practical outputs that can be shared with the wider sector (including case studies, guidance, tools, etc.)
