Here’s why apprenticeship reform is a good and not a bad idea.


The Apprentice Finder

Regular followers of this blog will have seen a couple of articles around apprenticeship reform already.

Roger Francis, who is the Director at Creative Learning Partners has recently published this article which neatly explains the rationale behind the need to make the move.

There have been many occasions where we have seen apprenticeship schemes involving employers who just weren’t that interested in what was going on. My belief is that the employers concerned were not very well engaged because they didn’t see a financial transaction take place and as such didn’t really value what was going on.

We have seen something similar before when contributions for 19+ apprenticeships came in several years ago. I distinctly remember seeing a shift-change in attitude from the employers, merely because they had seen a financial transaction!

About Paul Champion

Some have called me a leader, and a entrepreneur, they say I have integrity, presence and skills to ensure continuous improvement and success in whatever challenges I face. They also tell me that I am positive, resilient and motivating. I say, I'm just a normaI guy from Gateshead in the North of England, who started as an apprentice engineer. I have been in the right place at the right time and in the wrong place at the wrong time! I have successfully initiated and led complex organizations and situations to completion and success, and I have been in some jobs where success seemed untouchable. Mainly though, I have tried to learn everyday, help people to progress and learn the skills they need to be successful. I have had the privilege of working with some great people locally across the UK and more recently internationally in Asia, Europe and now USA, where I am lucky enough to work for www.3aaa.co.uk where I am head of 3aaa USA. This website is just me having an outlet to talk about all those thoughts, ideas and things I learn that pass through my head every day when I face the challenge of doing business. I will also rant on about how great apprenticeships are, and how you can help change peoples lives through them. After all thats how I got to do the great things that I have done, and also I am still an apprentice everyday! All I ask is that if you find it interesting then leave a comment and share what you read. THANK YOU.
