The series of free workshops of Incredible learnings and The Engineering Program announced its winter schedule to complement the National Inclusion Week theme – Time to Act: The Power of Now.
Each Time for Change workshop invites keynote speakers to explore the challenges faced by diverse and disadvantaged candidates and inspire employers and training providers to start breaking down the barriers that drive them to take action!
Now in its third year, our Time for Change series has covered topics such as social mobility in apprenticeships, language issues, self-selection, affirmative action in apprenticeship recruitment and skills gaps .
Newly scheduled sessions explore a range of topics, including:
- welfare issues often faced by apprentices from diverse backgrounds
- the role of degree-based learning as a positive driver of social mobility
- opportunities that apprenticeship can offer as a second chance to disadvantaged groups reintegrating into society
Register now through the Genie Program website.
“Social mobility, diversity and inclusion are complex and challenging topics. The Time for Change series highlights the most common themes to encourage employers to take the first step in addressing them; acknowledgement,” said Amazing Apprenticeships founder and director Anna Morrison CBE. “We are finding more and more with our work on the Engineering program that knowing how to get started is often the biggest hurdle for employers of apprentices.
Confirmed speakers include representatives from Disability Rights UK, NHS Health Education England, CMI and We are Breakthrough as well as alumni of The Genie program with current experience leading change in their organisation.
“The theme for this year’s Inclusion Week aligns incredibly well with our own goals. Time for Change brings together the employer community to inspire action. adds Morrison. “The time for change is now!”
