We are introducing a new free service - 'Member Showcase'. This will appear first in Connect #100, and then be updated in subsequent issues. We will also provide a dedicated presence on the AELP homepage with a link to this specially created Member Showcase page - at no charge!
This page contains a range of materials designed to support providers with the implementation of the QCF, including a guide called Making the Most of the Qualifications and Credit Framework. This new resource will help providers use the framework so that it brings real benefits to the learners and employers they work with and in doing so will help them develop their businesses. It contains audio files of conversations with 3 providers in which they describe their experiences of using the framework to develop flexible, accessible programmes of learning.
The new £450,000 AASF fund, which is being managed by AELP on behalf of the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS), aims to support young people who have struggled to get on to an apprenticeship through the government’s Apprenticeship Vacancy service. Click on the page to learn more!
The HR Forum Topic Page aims to support the activities of AELP’s HR Forum. The HR Forum has been set up to support Members, both large and small, in the development of their HR practices.
The resources on this page have been designed to help providers maximise the opportunities created by the introduction of the single Adult Skills Budget, helping them to become more confident in the use of the budget flexibilities.
This topic section aims to provide useful information and links regarding Equality and Diversity policy and issues likely to be of interest for members.
This will include information on Equality and Diversity projects that AELP are directly involved in or where AELP are able to signpost members to partner organisations that can provide useful information and support to learning and skills sector providers.
In today’s world of reform and challenge to the skills system, effective leadership at senior level is critical to the success of training providers and other organisations in the skills landscape. A new set of support materials for board directors and trustees will help provider boards and board members to become fully aware of their responsibilities and carry out their roles effectively.
