It's all change now for framework and standard apprenticeship starts from 1st May 2017. To survive and thrive it will be vital that training providers, colleges and employers understand the reforms, model the impact to thrive with existing and new employers.
Very practical training with lots of worked examples (for providers accessing levy credit and non-levy funding).
So join Nick Linford, author of the Complete Guide to Funding Apprenticeships, for this technical and in depth practical workshop.

" and Steve McDermott, BI Analyst Lead at Highbury College said: "Very informative, all bases covered."
