With procurement for the next round of Foundation Apprenticeships now underway, SDS and STF are joining forces to offer members information sessions aimed at highlighting the opportunities available specifically to training providers.
The sessions will be short and focussed – with a maximum of eight delegates. A training provider already delivering FAs will be in attendance to give a view from the chalk face. Diane Greenlees from SDS (or one of her colleagues) will provide an overview of the FA programme – and answer specific questions from training providers on how they can become more involved.
The main sectoral areas being promoted are Business & Administration, Childcare, IT and Engineering – but members seeking to deliver in other areas are also welcome to attend a session.
With only three training providers currently taking the lead in a delivery consortium for FAs, there is clearly room for expansion. And these sessions are your opportunity to raise your concerns and issues – what’s stopping your organisation from getting involved?
The Info Sessions will be held at City & Guilds Scotland, 144 West George Street, Glasgow on the following dates:
- Friday 23 November, 1.00-2.30
- Monday 26 November, 1.00-2.30.
