Who is this course for?

The course is primarily aimed at front-line staff who have daily interactions with apprentices, for example:

  • teachers
  • tutors
  • trainers
  • on-programme assessors
  • apprenticeship managers or heads of department
  • employer engagement staff
  • learner / apprentice support staff.

Training aim

The course aims to inform and encourage action, by helping you:

  • identify your current knowledge and understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) and the apprenticeship reforms
  • identify barriers and challenges that apprentices within the nine protected characteristics may face during the new apprenticeship standards journey
  • consider solutions and good practice to overcome these barriers and ensure apprenticeships are accessible and inclusive for all
  • reflect and identify how your practice should change (and that of your team and organisation).


    You will have the knowledge and confidence to:

    • understand equality legislation and the apprenticeship reforms
    • identify barriers and challenges that some apprentices may face in the reformed apprenticeship system
    • consider solutions and changes to your practice that could help overcome these barriers
    • complete a personal and organisational action plan to encourage changes to your practice and that of your organisation
    • access additional resources and information (for those who need additional support or who want to explore issues in more depth)
    • measure your increase in confidence, as a result of the course.

    Length of the course

    The online course takes approximately two hours to complete. With specialist resources on mental-health for extended learning.

    If you're a team leader or apprenticeship manager, why not consider arranging a half-day CPD session for staff using the course, with time afterwards for discussion and sharing good practice across apprenticeship teams and departments?
