Time for Change: Using apprenticeships to drive social mobility, diversity and inclusion

More than any other early career route, apprenticeships offer real opportunity to drive social mobility, diversity, and inclusion in an organisation.

This NAW2022, Amazing Apprenticeships are proud to invite you to a very special Time for Change session as we invite leading apprentice employers to our virtual stage to present and explore the initiatives they have already implemented within their roles, their plans for the next 12 months and just how they have managed to drive change when it comes to social mobility within their organisations.

Join Anna Morrison CBE, founder and director of Amazing Apprenticeships as she introduces a brilliant panel of early careers practitioners to discuss concepts that can be explored, practical ideas that can be instigated and what is possible in the job you are in to achieve change when it comes to social mobility within apprenticeships.
