Course Description

Enhance apprentices’ experience with digital technology

Apprenticeships are changing. The UK Government has introduced new standards to ensure apprentices are receiving quality training. Discover how using digital technology can enrich your apprentices’ experience and open up opportunities for your organisation.

You’ll learn how to weave in digital resources across the whole apprentice journey from preparation to end-point assessment. You’ll navigate through the Jisc Apprenticeship Toolkit stages of Preparation, Planning, Delivery and Assessment which will help you develop your own designs for a digitally-enriched apprenticeship programme.

What topics will you cover?

  • Preparation: staff and organisational readiness
  • Planning the apprentice journey
  • Planning the apprentice programme to support delivery
  • Digital for developing learner support
  • Digital for supporting evidence collection
  • End-point assessment (EPA)
