  • Financial Services Apprenticeship Update: 2018 roundup

    by Lewis Charlesworth | Oct 16, 2018

    2018 has been another year of growth and change with Apprenticeships, especially in the Financial Services Sector with the launch of the L6 and L7 Financial Service Professional programmes, the first wave of Apprentices going through EPA and ongoing review of assessment plans and funding bands.

    Whilst it's an exciting time for employers looking to maximise the opportunities Apprenticeships can bring, it can be difficult to appreciate what's available and how they can work for your organisation.

    To help you navigate this new world of Financial Services Apprenticeships, please join Kaplan and our panel of expert speakers including NOCN, LIBF, IRM, ICA and others for a breakfast event on November 22nd (8.30am - 10.30am) at The Andaz, 40 Liverpool Street, London, United Kingdom, EC2M 7QN.

    In this session we'll cover:

    • An overview of the current Apprenticeship landscape and changes due in 2019

    • A briefing of the range of standards available in the FS space, with tips on which would work best for your organisation

    • The advantages and disadvantages of converting existing training into Apprenticeship standards - including the treatment of graduates and school leavers

    • Using Apprenticeships to ensure regulatory compliance and aiding workforce planning (post Brexit)

    • Lessons learned from End Point Assessments carried out so far

    • A discussion on the role Apprenticeships can play in achieving diversity in the sector

    We do hope you can join us. Places are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.

  • Everything you wanted to know about OnDemand - Q&A

    by Lewis Charlesworth | Sep 13, 2018
    What study method works best for you? Have you considered OnDemand?

    OnDemand allows you to study when and where you want, using bite-sized, tutor-led online resources. These are designed to keep you motivated and the integrated practice questions make sure you stay on track.

    It was first launched for CIMA in September 2016, followed by AAT in May 2017, and has now been released for ACCA students.

    With leading pass rates (i.e. 88% for CIMA) it’s helping more students progress quicker and qualify faster.

    Here our award winning tutor talks about the study method and how it works in practice. 
  • Setting up and approving cohorts on The Apprenticeship Service

    by Lewis Charlesworth | Sep 06, 2018
    Are you a levy paying employer? Are your Apprentice's studying with Kaplan?

    For Kaplan to be able to draw down Apprenticeship funds from your levy pot,  there are a few simple steps that you need to take through your "The Apprenticeship Service" ("TAS") account. This will also allow you to track your Apprentice's draw down and help us provide a seamless start to their programme 

     As the 'sponsoring employer' you need to log in, assign a training provider, allocate a cohort and approve the cohort. You may need to do this regularly dependent on your intake of Apprentices.

    We've put together two short videos to demonstrate what you need to do.
