Update on UVAC’s AWD modules

Update on UVAC’s AWD modules

The UVAC team has developed the following 3-hour FREE modules as part of its delivery of the DfE fully-funded Apprenticeship Workforce Development (AWD) Programme;

  • Planning the integration of on-the-job and off-the-job learning/training (Delivery staff)
  • Designing and delivering effective end-point assessment throughout the apprenticeship (Delivery Staff)
  • Planning effective curriculum design for apprenticeships (Managers and Delivery Staff)
  • Planning and maintaining high-quality and effective teaching and training (Managers and Delivery staff)


This programme aims to focus on the withdrawals of apprenticeships increasing the achievement rate of all apprenticeships to the DfE target of 67% by 2025. It is intended to support all providers focusing on areas of intervention, prevention, action planning and wider professional development. 


We encourage you to make use of this no-cost CPD offer.  

Available dates are released monthly and you can register HERE where the full course catalogue is also available to view. 


Apprenticeship Action Groups

To support practitioners with action planning around improvements and addressing the risks of withdrawals and low achievement, Apprenticeship Action Group (AAGs) form a broad community of professional practice focused on particular themes and for all types and sizes of institution and organisation.  The full list of Apprenticeship Action Group (AAGs) includes:
