Apprenticeship programme planning models are needed when your traditional hiring strategies are no longer working or there is a growing shortage of technically skilled talent. Developing your own people with the right knowledge and skills will help reduce current or impending workforce gaps.
Dynamic and Flexible Apprentice Plan
Having a dynamic and flexible apprentice workforce plan is important. It needs to be reviewed on a regular basis to make sure there have been no changes caused by internal and external forces such as new orders, new growth, staff turnover, national changes to apprentices or major changes to apprenticeship funding.
The best approach to apprenticeship workforce planning is to make it relevant to the business and to keep it simple. As well as considering how the apprenticeship plan is implemented from a recruitment perspective it is also important to consider the delivery model. Apprentices, will initially need additional support to make them productive and therefore the right programmes need to be established that give them the skills, knowledge and behaviours needed for the business. Managers will need to buy into the apprenticeship progarmme and ensure its success for both the business and the individual.
