At the Digital Leaders Public Sector Insight Conference this March, Richard Goodwin, MD of The JGA Group and Owen Twidale, Digital Apprenticeship expert, discussed how apprenticeships can build high-level skills for the future in the public sector, at every age and stage of careers. In many cases, they embody the professionalisation of under-recognised modern job roles which may previously have had limited training options.
Employers often think of apprenticeships as an entry-level route into careers. Employing young people on apprenticeships increases the diversity of your workforce and enables you to grow talent within your organisational culture. Higher and professional level apprenticeships can be for anyone at any age and any stage in their careers, providing the opportunity to progress and add even more value to your organisation.
Opportunities for apprenticeships are growing. The working world is being changed step by step by the introduction of new professional level apprenticeships at Master’s degree level.
