With the funding levy for delivering apprenticeships coming into effect in April 2017 and the government offering co-investment for non-levy paying employers to share the cost of training and assessing of their apprentices, now is the time to look at how to establish a successful apprenticeship programme.

Our Delivering Apprenticeships course is designed to provide you with guidance on the current policy and funding arrangements, learn how to attract the right apprentices for your organisation, how to balance on and off-the job training and how to develop your organisation’s culture so that apprentices can thrive.

Attend this timely and interactive course to gain the tools necessary to design and deliver a successful apprenticeship programme within your organisation. Through best practice case studies and an interactive workshop, explore how to overcome staff development challenges, maximise retention and progression of apprentices and leave with a personalised action plan for your organisation.
