The Apprenticeship Diversity & Social Mobility Forum is a thought leadership forum sharing knowledge and insights for social and economic development.


Through The Apprenticeship Diversity & Social Mobility Forum and The Multicultural Apprenticeship Alliance, we want to collectively raise the issue of social mobility, socio-economy, equality, diversity, inclusion and equity of opportunity and make a positive change for underrepresented communities.
