Due to the current lockdown in place, apprenticeships are now being delivered 100% remotely. This has been a huge challenge for thousands of providers who have had to adapt their entire delivery method overnight.
How will #COVID_19 affect #apprenticeships in the long run?
The COVID-19 situation has created a ‘new normal’ in apprenticeships – students learning from home, tutors providing remote support, a suspension of Ofsted inspections and temporary funding rules.
What does furlough mean for apprentices?
Furlough leave is a new form of absence introduced by the Government as part of its Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. It's available to all UK businesses for all staff – including apprentices.
