APPRENTICESHIP Levy Event – 16th June, Nottingham

With the Government’s target to create three million apprenticeships by 2020 and the introduction of an Apprenticeship Levy due in 2017, it is vital to ensure that employers have the information they need to understand the changes that will be taking place, how they can prepare and respond to them and how they can access and shape high quality Apprenticeship and Traineeship provision. Ark People & Communities are delighted to be involved in this breakfast meeting event will introduce up-to-date details of the levy and include presentations about how other large employers are already preparing for the levy and engaging with apprenticeships.

There will also be a presentation from the D2N2 LEP about apprenticeship and skills priorities within Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire and giving details of future funding and support available to employers. Structured round table discussions will take place to identify the key issues facing Housing Associations and their suppliers, as well as identify opportunities for joint working to maximise the benefits of the Levy and integrate apprentices into their businesses.
