Diversity in Apprenticeships Project: Case Study Number Three
1 March 2011
Funded by the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS), the UKRC developed and ran a ‘Diversity in Apprenticeships’ pilot project in 2010/11, working with the UK’s leading energy providers to increase the number of female and BAME apprentices in this sector.
Driving Force - A lot of effort and resources goes into attracting applications from non-traditional candidates (see Case Study One of this series – The Business Case for Atypical Apprentices). Organisations involved in this project were therefore keen to review their recruitment process to ensure it doesn’t inadvertently jeopardise these candidates’ chances of successful employment.
