Kaplan Apprenticeship Advisory Panel

What is the Apprenticeship Advisory Panel and why did we set it up?

Understanding the views of our apprentices and getting their input is really important to us. It helps us to continually evaluate and improve our Apprenticeship programmes. Whilst feedback is invited from all of our apprentices, we’ve created an Apprenticeship Advisory Panel that will be represented by current Kaplan apprentices.

Members will provide information and feedback about their views and attitudes towards Apprenticeships, as well as valuable insights into life as a Kaplan apprentice.

Acting as the voice of the apprentice, the Advisory Panel members will attend a quarterly 'virtual' meeting with an Apprentice Panel Sponsor (APS). The APS will be a senior member of Kaplan staff who will facilitate meetings and ensure all members are able to contribute to discussions.

The discussions and output from the meetings are reported and shared with the senior leadership team at Kaplan, who will use this to inform changes to our programmes as required and enhance our Apprenticeship offering.
