Not all apprentices are guaranteed a job with their current employer at the end of their apprenticeship so training providers need a strong focus on developing the employability skills of their apprentices.
Five strategies for encouraging use of digital technology in programmes of study are:
Developing professional networks: Abingdon and Witney College worked with learners, teachers and employers to show how LinkedIn can help vocational learners develop professional networks. The outcomes are available as an interactive toolkit and learning content that can be embedded in your Moodle site.
Making the transition from study to employment: This video shows how the use of e-portfolios at Southampton Solent University has helped learners better demonstrate their skills to employers.
