Digitally-enriched apprenticeships roadmap

In this video, Diana Laurillard introduces apprenticeship providers who talk about their uses of digital methods to support both staff and apprentices

In this video, apprenticeship providers talk about their uses of digital methods to support both staff and their apprentices.

We describe their journey in terms of the government’s ‘Future Apprenticeships Toolkit’, which sets out the requirements and stages of planning for the new apprenticeships.

For this course, you will work though the Jisc ‘Apprenticeship Toolkit’. This free online resource offers advice and guidance specifically on how digital technology can open up the opportunities to apprenticeship providers. It also addresses some of the common issues and challenges with running an apprenticeship programme. You can access this toolkit using the link in the See Also section.

The four main areas for consideration are:

  1. Preparation
  2. Planning
  3. Delivery
  4. Assessment.

The roadmap for the apprenticeship journey This graphic is based on the Jisc roadmap for ‘The Apprenticeship Toolkit’ which is also available as an interactive on their website. We are grateful to Jisc for permission to use their design. Click to enlarge.

This week, you will focus on Preparation and Planning, next week you will look at Delivery and Assessment. Throughout this course, we assume that you already have an understanding of apprenticeships and will be transitioning to the new Standards. See the Institute for Apprenticeships website or the ‘Guide for apprenticeship levels’ PDF in the Downloads section below for more information if you are not familiar with this area.
