Apply for a Year 2 Collaborative Project

Applications for The Apprenticeship Workforce Development (AWD) Collaborative projects are still open until 5pm Friday 16 February.


The objectives of these projects are to “develop and manage opportunities for providers and employers to share learning and development activities, collaborating as needed for maximum impact”.


Projects will need to focus on a specific issue/challenge based on evidence, ensuring that outputs/resources are transferable and accessible to other providers throughout the sector.


Applicants are provided five themes to consider in their application – these are based on the DfE quality strategy and feedback received during year 1 AWD Training Needs Analysis and focus group activities, which highlighted the key challenges/barriers for the sector.


Read more about these themes in the guidance notes
