Two Way Street: Wirral Metropolitan College - developing expertise to work with SMEs

Summary Arvia Technology and Altus Science are ‘hi-tech’ chemical businesses based in the Wirral already recruiting advanced and higher level apprentices. This case study illustrates how the college explored whether the existing model of a learner journey could be replicated for a group of learners, not only in large multi-national employer organisations but also within small- and medium-sized local employers. The success of the exchange lay in the open and trusting relationship built with the FE provider and their employer partners.
