The London Work Based Learning Alliance (LWBLA) assumes the person completing the form has a good overview and knowledge of their organisation and will have checked internally for all information and detail. LWBLA are not asking for anything new – all the information required should be available. The form is in two parts. The first is the approval criteria necessary to become an Ambassador; the second focuses on the information about your organisation that will be publicly available. No additional information is required beyond the application form.

The key aspects of the approval criteria are:
We have designed a standard template as we want to be able to use information publicly on our website in response to requests from Local Authorities, schools, JCP, etc. The information requests aim to focus on the delivery of Apprenticeships and related/complementary services. Please feel free to use the ‘other information’ box if the questions do not fully reflect what you do. All information is discretionary and you do not need to complete this with the exception of the question on CRB checks, but it will help any third party to understand who you are and what you do.
We have asked for recent performance information held on the SFA Gateway – this is not generally used publicly but is of specific interest to schools and Local Education Authorities. We only need Apprenticeship performance. If this is a sensitive issue please contact us to discuss further.
The key point of the information request is to accurately identify the geographic areas in which you want to operate as an Apprentice Ambassador. We see this at three levels; at the borough level either where you have a business location or where you deliver services, sub-regionally, or at a London regional level. It is important you have agreed the Boroughs you want to offer the service in with colleagues internally. If you are tempted to offer a regional service across London then you are likely to receive requests from all 32 London Boroughs.
The information we hold on the LWBLA website can be updated by you at any time.
Please can you ensure the form is printed of and signed by a Senior Manager/Director. This is central to the provider accepting a commitment to be an Apprentice Ambassador.
We are very interested in feedback on this form, what can be improved upon, and specifically its use and ease of completion.
