Apprenticeships and Covid-19 Webinar
Thursday 30th April
The current covid-19 pandemic means big changes for the way we all work and apprentices are feeling the impact of these changes too. For some apprentices this means a break in access to training, moving to a full-time job or even redundancy in some extreme cases.
Many will also be asked to work from home and will be doing their learning from home. There are furloughs but the learning and end-point assessments can still continue. Join Mark and Kirsi to discuss how unions and union reps can support apprentices to stay at work and keep learning.
Mark Rowe is a national project worker with responsibility for supporting apprenticeships. Before joining unionlearn he was a trade union representative for over 25 years. With unionlearn Mark has worked on ULF projects, run a digital inclusion project, and now supports the apprenticeship strategies unionlearn and unions are developing.
Kirsi Kekki is a unionlearn policy officer looking after adult learning and apprenticeships, English, maths and ESOL policy. Over her career she has worked in a number of trade unions in the UK and Finland with a variety of roles from trade union education and organising to project management.
