ELA response to consultation on Flexi-job apprenticeships

Wednesday, April 21, 2021

The Government is seeking views on our vision and operating framework for flexi-job apprenticeship schemes as a means to increase the use of apprenticeships in certain sectors and professions.

This consultation is asking how flexi-job apprenticeship schemes can support the growth of apprenticeships in sectors where short-term and project-based contracts are common.

Further information on this consultation is available here.

ELA will be responding to this consultation and we invite ELA members to apply to join the working party which will draft ELA’s response. The working party will be chaired by Robert Davies, Walbrook Law LLP and Jennifer Sole, Curzon Green Solicitors

The deadline for submissions is 31 May 2021. Those applying will therefore need to have availability to work on this consultation during May.

Email us or reply by 5pm on 30 April to apply to join this working party with a couple of sentences about your practice and your interest in this consultation.

How ELA working parties work

A typical working party will organise its work by sharing out the consultation questions amongst the working party members. In this way, the work can be shared out evenly, and members can volunteer to take on as much or as little as they feel able to at the time. Each working party member will then draft a response to the question(s) they have agreed to take on, within the agreed timetable. The submission deadlines are often quite tight, so it is vital that everyone keeps to the timetable. The chair(s) of the working party (who are almost always drawn from the L&P Committee) will then pull the individual submissions together and edit them for consistency, ensuring that our submissions are politically neutral and address the concerns of both employees and employers.
