Join GMCA for a special session during National Apprenticeship Week to celebrate and share the results of the Removing Barriers to Apprenticeships (RBA) Programme!

This programme is a collection of test and learn projects that received funding from GMCA to develop initiatives supporting disadvantaged and under-represented groups to access apprenticeships and pre-apprenticeship activity. The projects tackled barriers related to gender, ethnicity, personal circumstance (lone parents), learning disabilities, age, and distance from the labour market, and to date have engaged more than 100 learners.

Join us as we share our findings from the RBA programme and give practical insights into making apprenticeship more accessible, and more successful, for people from disadvantaged or underrepresented backgrounds. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A.


This event will be of interest to industry professionals, including training providers, intermediary groups, and employers with Diversity & Inclusion / social value goals – please do share with anyone you may be interested!
