Groups of employers (trailblazers) have been leading the way in carrying out changes to apprenticeships. They have been working together to design apprenticeship standards and assessment approaches to make them world class.
As part of this work, The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is developing three new apprenticeship standards in human resources (HR).
The CIPD would like your views on these new apprenticeships and are keen to establish if they are:
- fit for purpose
- and, what skills / behaviours you'd expect of apprentices in HR roles.
You can share your views in this survey, which should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
The CIPD have also released a new free factsheet, Skills policy in the UK, which helps to explain what is meant by ‘skills’ and why they are important for employers.
For organisations, skills are vital to meeting both current and future business demands. To be successful and competitive, businesses must ensure their talent and succession planning takes into consideration what skills need to be sourced, nurtured and developed now, in order to create successful and productive workforces of the future. This resource looks at ways of achieving this by helping organisations learn about:
- the current skills situation in the UK
- the nature and key aims of the UK’s skills policy
- national developments
You can download the free resource from the CIPD website.
