The Department of Education and the Institute for Apprenticeships who will provide an overview of the apprenticeship reforms including the new standards, the employer levy and how the IfA will impact on delivery.
Employers and FDQ on how the new standards and the levy are working on the ground from a provider perspective, looking at end point assessment, funding and the employer levy.
The Plenary Session
Keynote speakers including FDQ CEO 'Terry Fennell' and Chairman 'Bill Jermey' will give attendees an opportunity to discuss the implications, delivery and funding of the new apprenticeship reforms. There will be ample scope to carry these conversations over into lunch for further networking opportunities.
These will offer attendees detailed operational discussion and sharing of best practice and include technical support from FDQ Awards and an in-depth look at End Point Assessment, with further announcements to follow.
In addition to providing an overview of the new reforms and insight into how FDQ is supporting your training and delivery offer, the day also provides a look slightly further ahead. This will consist of a look at how the post-16 technical qualifications will impact on apprenticeships from 2019.
This event is aimed at FDQ centres in England due to the nature and scope of the current changes to apprenticeships.
FDQ will be holding similar events for centres in Northern Ireland and Wales in June, details to be advertised soon.
