Making Skills Work for Employers: Work Based Learning Week
Europe’s highest performing economies are supported by strong systems of work based learning, contributing to low unemployment and fewer skill shortages. Whether your business will be paying the Apprenticeship Levy from 2017, or not, SDS in Partnership with Ayrshire College and DYW are holding an event for employers of all sizes to inform them of the developments and opportunities with the Apprenticeship Family and key products supporting work based learning.
Industry-led Foundation, Modern and Graduate Level Apprenticeships are beneficial to employers for a variety of reasons and attending one of these events will ensure that your business has up-to-date information on what is available, how the Apprenticeship Family can support your business and what you need to do to make sure apprentices are part of your business’ future success.
Make sure your business benefits from the range of apprenticeships available by registering on Eventbrite to attend your local event.
