The government has introduced a number of significant skills reforms which will have a direct impact on the workforce and employers’ resources. This event will provide an overview of the proposals and highlight the opportunities and challenges to developing high quality skills which benefit the workforce and organisation.
In particular the conference will focus on the introduction of the new apprenticeship levy, and will be an opportunity for union reps and employers to find out more about how the levy will work, what the implications will be for the workforce and how unions and employers can work in partnership to develop high quality schemes and devise strategies that will best support apprentices.
The event will promote a range of materials that will help union representatives and employers improve their apprenticeship programmes and English and Maths provision. These materials will be available at the conference.
The agenda for this conference will include:
- Regional skills challenges
- TUC Apprenticeship policy update
- Trade union tools to support union engagement in apprenticeships
- Update on English and maths
- Interactive workshop
We anticipate high demand for the conference. The event is free for all Union Reps and employers, and lunch will be provided. Unionlearn are not responsible for reimbursing any travel costs associated with your attendance on the day.
