Apprenticeships: how can your business benefit?
Fri 24 March 2017, 09:00 – 12:00 GMT
Your staff are a key resource for your business and developing those staff will be key to its success. Do you have the right people in place to keep your business growing? Are you looking to take on new staff this year? Have you considered taking on an apprentice?
A common misconception is that all apprentices are young, school leavers but an apprentice can be any age - it's never too late to retrain or upskill. With the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy this April, now's the time to find out how your business could benefit.
At this free event you will have the chance to get practical advice on:
The benefits of apprenticeships from a business perspective
What it's like to work as an apprentice
How to maximise Government funding to develop your staff
How the Apprenticeship Levy will work
How you can attract a diverse workforce

With plenty of opportunities to network with employers, hear from apprentices and pick the brains of experts, this event is not to be missed.
