I came across the book 'The Best Vocational Trainer's Guide' by Hilary Read and Ann Gravells before Christmas which couldn't have come at a better time! I was feeling that our internal and external Level 3 and 4 Digital Learning Design apprenticeship programmes needed to be improved dramatically in the way learning is delivered and assessed. I've talked about some improvements previously, but little had been done to change these. I was drawn to this book as it appeared to answer some frustrations I had been asking my self over and over. I have the complex role of being a line manager, trainer and assessor, so I am both employer and provider. Below are some findings from the book I have picked out at this current time and adapted to my context to get started on improving some problematic and frustrating areas I am experiencing.
