The apprentice agency

Your complete apprenticeship partner

The proposition

The apprentice agency brings together all the elements required for colleges to recruit, support and deliver apprenticeships at high volumes and over a wider geographic area than traditional delivery methods whilst maintaining high quality levels and delivering learning contextualised to the needs of individual learners and employers.

We will run sector specific advertising and marketing campaigns to recruit employers and apprentices to significantly increase the number of apprenticeships delivered by our partners.

Colleges will earn additional revenue whenever their learning content is used by another partner and will be able to jointly bid for national contracts and opportunities.

The platform

At the centre of our service is learningWave, a social learning platform built from the ground up to deliver apprenticeships. The platform is used for recruitment, pre-apprenticeship screening, learner induction, the delivery and assessment of knowledge based learning, the collection of competency-based evidence and an optional functional skills solution.

Replacing classroom based learning with high-quality online social learning will lead to significant increases in apprenticeship numbers and income through roll-on, roll- off delivery of apprenticeships at any time of year, the extension of the geographic reach of each partner college and a reduced number of assessor visits allowing colleges to increase volumes without increasing staff numbers.

Content offer

College partners are able to utilise all the apprenticeship frameworks available on the platform. They will ‘own’ and act as subject area experts for three frameworks of their choice.

We will work with curriculum experts at each college to collaboratively create the learning materials for each of these frameworks. All content is optimised to work effectively on smartphones and tablets as well as desktop computers, giving apprentices the flexibility to use the devices they have close to hand.

Content can be packaged to give each apprentice a bespoke learning programme and is designed to give employers the flexibility to tailor learning and assessment activities to deliver maximum benefit to their business.

Become a partner today

We are currently working with a partner college in Yorkshire and the Humber but are looking for one college in each of the eight remaining English regions to join us as partners using the apprentice agency recruitment and delivery platform.
