Summary
  • An additional 655 million is to be spent on
    Apprenticeships, increasing the overall funding
    on Employer Responsive Apprenticeships to nearly
    5 billion in 2011/12.
  • 16-18 Apprenticeships continue to be a national
    priority with
  • 1 million young people in NEET and Key
    Trainings focus has
  • doubled the number of 16/18 Starts during
    this year and aims
  • to double again in the next 24 months but
    including 19 year olds where circumstances
    demand.

Objective
  • To double again the number of 16/19 year old
    Apprenticeship Starts
  • from just under 1,000 in 2010/11 to over
    2,000 in 2012/13
  • This will be achieved by increasing vacancies
    registered from 35 per week
  • to 60 per week and filling 70 of those
    vacancies.
  • In addition, employers on our CRM database
    need to increase from
  • 30,000 to100,000.
  • To minimise 6 week leavers to less than 10
    by adapting the
  • After Care Policy required for these
    youngsters in their first job.
  • To maintain our 80 completion rate.

The
Market Ideal! We are coming out of recession and
employers need another pair of hands to help
them grow again-at minimum cost. The following
quotes from surveys illustrate this
point- Given the current economic climate,
Apprenticeships help business on the route to
recovery. Taking on a young, enthusiastic
Apprentice will cost as little as 95 per week,
with their training costs fully
covered .National Apprenticeship
Service Apprentices deliver a very real return
on investment for businesses. Commitment and
loyalty are stronger, skills gaps are filled and
staff moral improved Warwick University
Institute for Employment Research Not only are
Apprentices good for business on the inside but
people prefer to buy from a company that supports
young people by employing an Apprentice . You
Gov 81 of businesses said their Apprentice
helped to generate higher, overall
productivity .. Populus Research At the
moment, only 14 of S.M.Es know how to access
Apprenticeship funding .. CBI/ EDI This is why
we will be targeting employers with less than
1,000 staff.

  • The Opportunity
  • There are no actual 16/18 Apprenticeship
    vacancies out there as no employer wakes up in
    the morning and says Im going to take on a
    16/18 year old today!.
  • Its our job to put that thought in their mind
    and, with their help, create a new vacancy for a
    16/18 year old with an Apprenticeship.
  • In the current year, we have created 35
    vacancies per week and filled 55 of them
    therefore, forecasting to find a permanent job
    for nearly1000 unemployed youngsters this year
    something to be proud of!
  • This increase in vacancies has been generated by
    our investment in Telesales Executives which is
    ongoing as we aim, also, to increase our 16/18
    teams where the market demands.

  • The
    Opportunity
  • In addition, we have tailored our Apprenticeships
    to specific industries.
  • This followed our very successful campaign that
    launched Apprenticeships for Recruitment
    Personnel which, in its pilot, will place nearly
    100 youngsters in recruitment companies.
  • In turn, this has resulted in the stamp of
    approval from REC (the Recruitment and Employment
    Confederation) where we have been approved as
    their only business partner for delivering
    Apprenticeships to their members (over 4,000
    branches awaiting our call!)
  • This has led to the development of more
    industry-tailored Apprenticeships in our offering

  • Insurance

  • Legal

  • Renewable energy

  • Call centres

  • Children and Young Peoples Workforce

Closing
on the Appointment Alternative Close- The
customer seems ready to buy in to the proposition
of an appointment with an account manager and
confirmation is gained by offering alternatives
to choose from We can arrange our meeting for
10.00 hrs tomorrow or 1400 on Friday-which would
suit you best? If not acceptable How about
Next week on Thursday at 15.00 or Monday the
following week at 10.00? If not acceptable
When would be the most convenient for you? When
the appointment has been agreed inform the
Employer of the Account Managers details and pass
on details to the Account Manager. Inform the
Employer that the Account manager will be sending
an Agenda. Plus all other information gleaned
and action agreed with the Employer If still
not acceptable the Employer clearly has not been
convinced of the value to them. Ask questions to
find out why.Handle the Objection!

Objections can be Sales opportunities From a
customers point of view, a genuine objection
could be
16-18
A request for information We simply havent told
the customer something he/she wants to know.
A lack of understanding The information we have
given has not been expressed clearly enough.
A desire to defer The customer needs to consult
someone else before committing himself.
Not completely sold We have not done our job
convincingly, perhaps not sold the benefits
strongly enough.
A buying/closing signal The customer is
close to saying yes but needs a little more
reassurance or help. If we can give a
satisfactory answer, we may well be able to close
the sale.
Digby Consultancy 0911

16-18
Formula
1. Listen (dont interrupt or talk over!!)
2. Acknowledge and check understanding (
empathetic responses, questioning and summary)
3. Answer (using benefits to outweigh the
objection)
5. Verify (does this satisfy the query made?)
6. Close and/or continue
Digby Consultancy 0911

Formula 2. Change the Frame
16-18
Its not what I want What exactly do you
want? Ive got one already Thats good. How long
have you had it? I have already spent my budget
for this year I understand- So its time to plan
for next year then? I am not interested I
understand-What part of our offering could we
change to give you the value you are looking
for? I already have a reputable supplier Good
sometimes it is nice to have other options?
