I’ll be speaking on a panel at the Skills Conference on 11 June 2020. I’ll speak on our collaboration to improve self-help behaviour among apprentices and trainees. We’ve conducted a behavioural insights trial using SMS to increase engagement, to provide resources and other support, and to encourage learners to reach out when they’re struggling with their vocational education and training.
