A technology business based in Market Harborough launches flagship apprentice management software in a bid to help employers and apprenticeship providers improve apprenticeship outcomes.
The software which is the brainchild of founder Kerry Linley, is designed to help apprenticeship providers and employers of apprentices, improve support and guidance for apprentices and increase their chances of completing an apprenticeship whilst reducing the administrative burden that comes with delivery.
The solution which is available for desktop and mobile devices has been designed for employers and providers who are serious about delivering quality apprenticeship programmes.
The interface is clean and intuitive, making it easy to use. It guides users through a best practice approach to employing, deploying, managing and supporting apprentices.
Some of our regions’ biggest industries have been talking about ‘skills shortages’ for decades. Apprentices can make a positive contribution but of those who start an apprenticeship in Britain, more than 30 per cent do not complete. As someone who has employed hundreds of apprentices and achieved industry busting outcomes in terms of retention and completion, Kerry wants to help other employers and providers increase their apprentice retention and completion levels and realise better returns on their investment in apprentice training.
The software works by capturing apprentice evidence and driving behaviours that are key to the successful delivery and achievement of an apprenticeship.
Employers can monitor apprentice behaviour and provide timely and appropriate interventions that support individuals who might be at risk of disengaging from their study, thereby improving the apprentice journey and their chances of a successful outcome.
The apprentice app, which is available to download from Google Play and the App Store, provides an easy to use interface with a comprehensive suite of tools for apprentices including an online learning portal, a daily journal and evidence repository as well as timesheets that record and evidence on and off the job hours.
Other features include a college check-in, absence reporting, holiday requests, expenses management, file sharing, messaging, inductions, reviews and more.
