It’s important that people with different interests in apprenticeships can get involved. Wider consultation allows people to take part who may not fit into the Technical Expert Group role or can’t make the time commitment. It’s for anyone interested in shaping apprenticeships including former apprentices, employers, trade unions and professional bodies.
Wider consultation allows us to gather a variety of views to ensure that apprenticeships are developed with as much collaboration from stakeholders as possible.
The consultation usually comes after employee workshops and Technical Expert Group (TEG) involvement. You take part online and you can contribute as much, or as little as you can manage.
If you're a former apprentice who would like to take part in the development of apprenticeships and help make improvements, please get involved by filling in our short form.
If you're an employer, but you feel that being part of a Technical Expert Group or employee workshop isn’t for you, or you can't commit the time required, we would still appreciate your input. This will help us to ensure that apprenticeships are right for you and your industry.
