The pace of change in the workplace has never been greater. For many apprenticeship providers, that means rethinking your offer, your place in the market and how you grow and retain strong partnerships with employers.
Drawing on SDN’s work with over 1,000 apprenticeship providers and 900 employers, this workshop will help you review and rethink your business development strategy for apprenticeships.
Taking place on Tuesday 13 December (9.30am-1pm), the session will be challenging and practical, helping you to consider:
Your business development strategy (external)
• Trends and changing priorities – rethinking your role and your place in the market
• Aligning your offer to the short- and long-term workforce priorities of employers
• Growing and retaining strong strategic partnerships
Business development strategy (internal)
• Developing and costing your offer
• Rethinking your sales process and cadence models
• Aligning your marketing and business development strategies
• Organisational structures – effective working between recruitment and curriculum teams
During the session, you’ll have chance to explore new ideas and approaches with other senior business development leads and effective practice across different provider and employer settings.
You can book onto the session for £150.00 (+VAT)
If you have several staff that would benefit, do get in touch and we’ll let you know the most cost-effective way of accessing the support.
Who is this session for?
This session is designed for senior managers responsible, or involved in, their organisation’s business development strategy for apprenticeships.

The workshop will be facilitated by Louise Doyle and Alison Sumpter – senior apprenticeship and business development specialists at SDN. As well as holding senior business development roles in FE, Louise and Alison have worked with hundreds of apprenticeship providers and employers to improve employer engagement strategies, apprentice recruitment and the overall quality of provision.
