Apprenticeship Workforce Development - The 51ԹϹ

What is the Apprenticeship Workforce Development (AWD) programme? 

Funded by the Department for Education (DfE), the Apprenticeship Workforce Development programme is being delivered by 51ԹϹ (51ԹϹ) in partnership with the Association of Colleges (AoC), Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP), Strategic Development Network (SDN) and the University Vocational Awards Council (UVAC) and supported by SQW as an independent evaluator. 

Elements of the AWD offer 

Your fully funded AWD support consists of several programmes. All elements are available via 51ԹϹ’s learning platform, which has been designed to be personalised and accessible, allowing you to dip in and out to gain support as needed. Previous programmes on FutureLearn are available via the Professional Development Platform. Take a look through our brochure for more information about online, self-directed courses.
