There are so many different pathways to apprenticeships, all offering different opportunities, but how much do you know about traineeships, T Levels, Kickstart, and how to implement the opportunities within your organisation?

In session 3, we were joined by influential speakers from the Edge Foundation, DWP, WMCA and the Careers and Enterprise Company to dissect the opportunities, the latest research and policy. We outline the many routes to an apprenticeship position and look at how organisations and training providers can make the most of them.
