Anyone looking to get experience and training to work in adult social care will now be able benefit from new flexible apprenticeships, the Government says.
The Government has launched a new £7m fund to help sectors with flexible employment patterns and short-term roles, such as digital, adult social care, transport and manufacturing, offer apprenticeships.
The fund will establish a small number of agencies that will set up new flexi-job apprenticeships so an apprentice can work across a range of projects and with different employers to gain the knowledge, skills and behaviours they need to be occupationally competent.
‘We want to build an apprenticeship system that enables everyone to get the experience and knowledge they require to get the job they want, while ensuring employers have a diverse talent pipeline to meet their skills needs,’ said the minister for apprenticeships and skills, Gillian Keegan.
‘Our flexi-job apprenticeships will unleash exciting new opportunities in sectors such as the creative industries and construction where employment is increasingly flexible and project-based, while also helping larger organisations to grow starts in their supply chains, levelling up chances for people to build the life they want.’
