Library Information and Archive Assistant Apprenticeship Workshops

Thursday, 30 January, 2020 - 10:00 to Thursday, 12 March, 2020 - 16:00

We ran a series of three one-day workshops in Brimingham, Manchester and London from Jan-Mar 2020 to explore the apprenticeship process and how it could benefit library staff.

The aim of these workshops was to provide library managers with the necessary information to assist them in developing their staff and providing opportunities for staff to work towards a level 3 professional qualification which will improve and enhance the professional knowledge.

It was also about myth busting – what is possible in offering apprentice qualifications and opportunities.The workshops were delivered by a range of professionals who are knowledgeable learning and development specialists, funders and library professionals who have been involved in the trailblazer process.

The workshops were funded by Arts Council England through Libraries Connected and CILIP and is part of our workforce development programme.
