How to drive social mobility through apprenticeships
To mark National Apprenticeship Week 2021, we are hosting a workshop during which you will be able to gain unique insights from the latest data and learn how you can maximise your current initiatives.
In order to recover from the pandemic we need a resilient workforce – one that can deliver results, drive innovation and offers access to all. Apprenticeships have a vital role to play in that recovery – 92% of firms who run a scheme believe it leads to a more motivated and satisfied workforce, while 80% report higher retention rates.
Join the Social Mobility Commission to explore:
- The impact of COVID-19 and how to plan for economic recovery – future-proofing your initiatives
- The positive impact apprenticeships can have on your workforce, such as higher staff retention
- How to measure the socio-economic background of your workforce using our new guidance
- How to collaborate with leading organisations and draw on their practical advice to build your existing programme
We look forward to you joining us for what we hope will be an engaging and informative session.
Event date: 10 February 2021

Employers play a key role in #socialmobility outcomes for many.
They determine where they set up their business, the types of job roles they create, and how and who they recruit; the income set by employers impacts living standards, pension contributions, as well as spending power in their local economy; they also play an important role in the health and wellbeing of employees.
However, with each part of the UK having an individual identity, history and economy, impacting its local population and their opportunities, the challenges to social mobility, and the solutions, may differ from region to region.
That’s where we think the use of our new #Data Explorer tool can help – join us at this event on 7 June at 12pm for employers to find out how you can utilise our new tool to understand your workforce distribution; provide insight for outreach activity and hiring activity; and to serve and support regional communities.
