Problems With Recruiting For Social Mobility

During National Apprenticeship Week 2021 Tom, our Employer Relationships Manager, was invited by the Social Mobility Commission to join an expert panel for a webinar entitled “Apprenticeships: a game-changer for social mobility”.

We’re best known for our work with schools and FE colleges, but we also work closely with government, leading social mobility charities and around 1000 of the country’s biggest and boldest apprenticeship employers. It the ‘bigger picture’ insight our positioning gives us that we were on the panel to share.

With so much to talk about and so little time, we were always going to be left feeling like the conversation could have been twice as long.

So we sat down with Tom (virtually), and asked him to explore one of the questions he was asked in a little more detail.
