In 2015, the government set a target to have 3 million new apprentices by 2020. The levy was introduced in April 2017 to raise £3bn a year to fund better training. In most cases the far-reaching benefits apprenticeships can offer businesses is being overshadowed by difficulties in implementing, and in turn, the adoption has been lower than anticipated. Which to some extent is not surprising, this is on the surface a completely different and regulated talent stream.
But, it doesn’t need to be difficult. At this event, we will offer the perspective of training providers, apprentices, employers and line managers to give a clear idea of how to implement a successful program with all stakeholders viewpoints considered. We will then break out into workshops to show just how simple running an effective apprentice program can be.
