Helping Government reforms achieve high quality apprenticeships


At our roundtable with Policy Exchange yesterday, the Skills Minister, Nick Boles, set out a thorough and clear set of reforms he is driving forward to ensure that the 3million apprenticeship target is met through high quality.  He rightly says that the levy is a game-changer and I share his excitement about how this will draw in employers who now have to invest in apprenticeship training, many for the first time.

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.

  1. Gday Paul, We have been tackling this same issue downunder in Australia. We in partnership with another regional Apprentice & Trainee services provider created a quality model and a supporting whitepaper on how to improve the quality outcomes of Apprentices and trainees to create a better, more productive Australia. The link to the model and the PDF whitepaper for downloading can be found here: http://www.atc-midwest.com.au/quality-outcome-model if you are interested. Cheers! Dave Clare, GM ATC Midwest
