Apprenticeship Workforce Development Programme

Apprenticeship Workforce Development Programme

The Apprenticeship Workforce Development (AWD) programme, funded by the Department for Education (DfE), initially launched in January 2021 to support staff at all levels and roles supporting or delivering apprenticeships.

Now in its second phase, AWD is being delivered by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) in partnership with the Association of Colleges (AoC), Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP), Strategic Development Network (SDN) and ourselves, University Vocational Awards Council (UVAC).

The AWD programme is currently offering a range of FREE courses on many aspects of apprenticeship delivery and is relevant to all provider types and sizes and is aimed at all practitioner roles to support CPD, extend the quality of provision and reduce the number of withdrawals and raise the achievement rate. 

The UVAC team has led the development of the following modules:

    1. Designing and Delivering Effective End Point Assessment throughout the Apprenticeship – Delivery staff)
    2. Enhancing teaching and training skills – Delivery staff
