#19 Talent Development through Apprenticeships (featuring Ziggy from Aspire2Learn)
Show Notes

So,  in the UK it's #NationalApprenticeshipweek which follows on from last week's podcast when we talked about talent engagement and the benefits of young workers in business and rising stars.

We were delighted to welcome our first guest!! We found just the person to talk to... the fabulous Ziggy Pindoria whose business is Aspire2Learn (https://aspire2learn.com/).   Ziggy's mission is to enable a positive change in life when starting in your career and provide continued opportunity to develop knowledge, skills and behaviours relevant to your chosen profession through delivering training and apprenticeship training.

We chatted about all things apprenticeships

  • What are apprenticeships?
  • Best practice in terms of attracting the right people into apprenticeships and matching with the employer? (recruitment)
  • The benefits to business and how not to do it….Ziggy has some great examples!
  • Benefits of work based learning
  • Benefits to employee’s and how apprenticeships can shape career pathways

And as always we finished with our takeaways and top tips to developing a skilled and motivated workforce through the use of Apprenticeships

We would love to continue our thinking around talent development, so if you are a willing guest let us know!!
