Launching an apprenticeship, school leaver programme or sponsored degree for school and college leavers, and successfully managing the recruitment process, can be a major challenge. It is vital that you understand your options, the funding available, and the best ways to attract candidates. Fortunately, you’re in the right place. We’ve got advice and information on the process of setting up various programmes, how much school leavers of certain ages and on particular programmes should be paid, and information on training providers, funding (including regional implications throughout the UK) and the different qualifications you can offer.
In terms of candidate attraction, we have advice on how to go about attracting certain groups, as well as research on who is most influential in terms of helping school leavers decide what programmes to apply for – vital for when you are promoting your schemes.
We’ve also included advice on how you can work with schools to achieve your goals; our latest school leaver market research – exploring in detail the situation in schools, with parents, teachers, careers advisers and young people themselves – a section on useful resources and reports; and how you can go about assessing school leaver candidates once they’ve applied to your programmes.
