The LWBLA are working with the Skills Funding Agency to research how providers are developing their Traineeship offer. We'd like to find out what is working, and what isn't. We'd like to identify successful employer engagement models and find out what type of employers are engaging with Traineeships in terms of size, geography, sector. We're also interested in how providers have been attracting learners to the programme. We're keen to hear your views and share any good practice around the issues, challenges and potential to grow capacity.
