Apologies for our lack of updates on the site, we have been busy gathering feedback from attendees and sponsors and all in all we are feeling quite pleased with ourselves! It seems that many of our aims about inclusivity and engagement were worth the forethought and gave a lot of people some nice warm feelings. We will put together a post summarising it all and also will keep you all updated with any further plans we have. We are still standing though, which is always a good thing !!
John Kinson th CTO from BUD will be running a workshop at our Tech Careers Fair on Saturday the 16th starting at
John has worked in the enterprise, telecoms
Bud is a complete software platform that supports every aspect of apprenticeship delivery. It brings together enrolment, programme creation, learning delivery, e-portfolio, reporting and funding management into a single system.
Designed by industry experts on a foundation of simplicity, compliance and consistency, it is a complete system that supports our clients in the delivery of exceptional training.
It’s been purpose built for Apprenticeships and because it’s a single end-to-end system, it avoids the costs and inefficiencies of using multiple systems. Bud enables paperless delivery and its in-built automation and workflow, supports efficient and compliant ways of working.
Bud will be giving a workshop with an overview of who they are as a company and demystifying the current apprenticeship offerings and how companies can make the most of them.
They will explain what apprenticeships are, how they work, and why they might be worth considering.
This will be an interactive session showing how apprenticeships work in practice: how they’re funded, what the employment options are, how they can help with career advancement, how training providers deliver apprenticeship training in partnership with employers
You will get to see examples of apprenticeship programmes (drawing on the content that they produce), with examples from software development, health and social care, project management, finance
They will discuss examples of how apprenticeship training might work, focussing on activities involved and give links to further sources of apprenticeship career info – who provides them, some training providers and some examples of employers providing apprenticeship training.
