Apprenticeship improvement advisors

Our apprenticeship advisors help providers keep up-to-date with apprenticeship reforms and shape more effective apprenticeship programmes.

ESIS’s apprenticeship advisors work closely with approved providers to help them improve and optimise every aspect of their apprenticeship delivery model, from curriculum to cost-effectiveness.

Recent reforms to the way that apprenticeships work mean that learning providers are faced with many challenges in keeping up-to-date with current practice. It is the role of our apprenticeship advisors to help clients through this – using their knowledge of the way apprenticeships now work, along with the challenges our clients face and the goals they aim for.

Candidates for this role should have extensive experience working in an apprenticeship-driven environment, be able to perform a baseline assessment of the business and delivery processes – and then recommend and assist with a programme of improvement that not only helps clients be better audit and inspection ready, but also run far more effective apprenticeship programmes.

Of great importance is ensuring that workplace skills and essential skills (such as English and mathematics) are explicitly embedded in all apprenticeship programmes in a meaningful way.

Apprenticeship advisors should be able to help not only with aspects of the apprenticeship programme’s curriculum, but also with back-office logistics such as performance-monitoring and record-keeping. A key focus is on helping to create apprenticeship programmes that can be completed within a defined time frame.

All applicants for roles with ESIS should be fully qualified, with extensive experience.
