Best Practice in Apprenticeships and Recruitment of Young People

Wednesday 14th September 2022

Theatre :  Skills, Training and Strategy 


Apprenticeships are a great way for employers to nurture their own talent and provide an excellent route for young people to enter the labour market when starting out in their careers as they allow an individual to train on a job and gain qualifications at the same time. Despite this, there are still a lot of misconceptions around apprenticeships amongst employers, individuals and parents.

This session looks at the role of learning providers and recruitment practices and how mismatches between the supply of and demand for apprenticeships can be improved and also provides recommendations for employers.

Panel discussion chaired by Howard Boswell with:

  • Ellis Bailey on creating a specific metals sector level 2 for UK Metals industry
  • Alan Young on Industrial Cadets Initiative and success in engagement with the future workforce.
