Help us develop support for BME apprentices

Unionlearn is looking for case studies on supporting Black and minority ethnic (BME) apprentices in the workplace.

Unionlearn are currently drafting a guide aimed at helping union reps and union learning reps to support BME apprentices and ensure unions are part of widening the access high-quality apprenticeships.

Good practice case studies will explore how unions can make a difference through negotiating with employers or raising awareness of helpful support schemes. The guide will include practical advice and recommendations for further action.

Unionlearn Project Officer Kirsi Kekki said:

To make the guidance more hands-on we are looking for case studies that help us tell stories that help reps to think how they can be part of widening diversity in apprenticeships.”

We’d also welcome any examples you may have about engaging with BME groups in any pre-apprenticeship programmes.”

Please contact Kirsi Kekki in unionlearn ([email protected]) for your case study ideas or other suggestions on what we should include in the guide.
