Impact

  • Line managers have increased confidence and skills managing their apprentice, and applicable more widely in their role
  • Apprentices have improved performance and progression, report greater job satisfaction, and are more likely to be retained

Why

  • Apprenticeships have huge potential, especially for young learners from disadvantaged backgrounds. We want to make sure they fulfil that potential.
  • Line managers play a crucial role in influencing the progress their staff make at work. They’re vital in ensuring apprenticeships deliver for both the apprentice and the business.
  • By investing some extra support in apprentices’ line managers, we want to boost the achievement and retention of their apprentices.

Eligibility

Participants must work for a London-based SME, and must line manage at least one apprentice who meets one or more of the following criteria:

  • Economically disadvantaged – earning below the LLW prior to starting the apprenticeship, or received free school meals at any point during their education
  • Is from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic background
  • Is from a group under-represented in their sector, e.g. women in the construction or digital/tech sector, men in the early years or social care sectors
  • Is otherwise disadvantaged in the labour market e.g. a care leaver, disabled
