London Councils Resources
London Councils has developed a business case resource for boroughs to draw upon to help make the case internally to recruit more young and diverse apprentices. The business case highlights the benefits that young apprentices can bring to boroughs, supported by evidence, while providing existing examples of boroughs that are doing great work to recruit more young and diverse apprentices.
This resource, put together by London Councils and NAS, is designed to support line managers to understand how apprenticeships work, how to get the best out of an apprentice, and what to do if things aren't working out as expected. It includes case studies and tips from managers and apprentices themselves, and is suitable for both the public and private sector.
A toolkit for employers, with comprehensive information on all you need to know about recruiting an apprentice, how to gain support within your organisation, and dispelling some of the myths around apprenticeships.
This document looks at some of the barriers faced by young people leaving care when trying to access apprenticeships, and some of the work done by London boroughs to support them to improve their skills and readiness for work. It includes case studies from a variety of boroughs.
