Training for Apprentices

Our Apprentice Rep Training materials, newly developed for 2016-17, are available for download below and sessions can now be booked.  The booking form is available on the main CRT webpage, along with further booking guidance. 

The training is aimed at newly elected apprentice reps who have not attended training before. It aims to develop confidence in their role, as being an apprentice rep for the first time can be a daunting prospect.

The training lasts 2 hours and is split into 2 parts. The first part looks at the role of the apprentice rep and what the Apprentice Learning Experience is, while the second half takes the rep through the process they would go through as a rep.

It covers:

  • Effective communication.
  • Gathering apprentice opinion.
  • Providing effective feedback.
  • Developing solutions to issues.
  • Meeting skills.

We have developed the following presentation as an introduction to the Apprentice Learning Experience, for colleges to use to generate initial interest amongst apprentices:

This presentation focuses more on introducing the apprentices to the concept of learning and teaching and how they can effectively feed back about their experience at college, whilst also introducing them to the role of the apprentice rep. Those interested in becoming a rep can then attend a training session, the materials for which are below.
