New apprenticeship and traineeship support available

ApprentikitsWe’ve made changes to some our Apprenti-kits, keeping them up-to-date with the latest learning outcomes and ensuring your learners have the knowledge that employers require.

The revised Apprenti-kits cover apprenticeships in business admin, customer service and team leading,  and take into account the latest changes and updates to qualifications and apprenticeship frameworks.

There have also been changes to the Apprenti-kit for Retail, with two new units added, giving learners even more depth in their studies.

Apprenti-kits are an innovative learner resource covering the mandatory units of knowledge-based qualifications within an apprenticeship, and include everything that learners need such as textbooks, workbooks and guidance from subject matter experts. Available in nearly 20 subject areas, Apprenti-kits are also available as e-kits, using Adobe editable software so that learners can complete them electronically.

TraineeshipsWe’ve also recently launched a range of Trainee-kits to support the government’s new traineeship programmes.

Traineeships are aimed at unemployed young people aged 16 to 24, and are seen by the government as one of its flagship training policies.

They are part of the apprenticeship family, and designed to give learners the work experience, skills and knowledge that employers need them to have in order to start contributing to their business.

A traineeship is designed to prepare learners to progress into either employment or a full apprenticeship and can last between 3 weeks to 6 months.

Trainee-kits are now available in the following areas:

  • Active Leisure;
  • Business and Administration;
  • Cleaning;
  • Conflict Management;
  • Customer Service;
  • Fire Safety;
  • Health and Social Care;
  • Hospitality and Catering;
  • Land-based;
  • Legionella;
  • Manual Handling;
  • Retail;
  • Risk Assessment;
  • Underage Sales Prevention;
  • Warehousing; and
  • Waste Management.

Each Trainee-kit contains the following:

A Welcome Booklet – explaining how traineeships and their component parts work.

Work Preparation Section – outlining the work preparation qualifications available and what is required of learners. There is also a section allowing learners to reflect on their work experience and keep a working diary.

A Textbook – providing learners with all the information they need to complete the academic aspect of their traineeship, with Highfield-style illustrations to engage them.

Workbooks – containing questions and activities that have been mapped to learning outcomes. The completion of them can be used as evidence of learning for the relevant qualification.

Trainee-kits are also available in e-kit format, using Adobe editable software so that learners can complete them electronically. Prices are:

2-4 units = £29.95
5-8 units = £35.95
9-12 units = £39.95
13+ units = £45.95
