Information and Advice on Apprenticeships Toolkit

Introduction

It is widely understood that effective information, advice and guidance can contribute to recruitment, retention, achievement and progression in learning.

This toolkit has been developed by members of the ALPHI network with funding support from the Learning and Skills Improvement Service from materials originally produced by the London Vocational Peer Group.  It is designed as a resource for teachers, careers coordinators and other stakeholders supporting young people to access Apprenticeships and the world of work.

The toolkit contains interactive teaching and learning resources designed to enable learners to understand and navigate the wealth of information and support available around Apprenticeship and employment.
