Apprentices 4 Businesses

  

Location: The Engine House

Date and time: Wed 25 July 2018 (10:00 – 14:00)

THE APPRENTICES 4 BUSINESSES EVENT ON WEDNESDAY 25 JULY WAS A GREAT SUCCESS! 

The free business support event proved to help the attendees learn as much as possible about how apprentices can add value to their businesses and how they can build apprenticeships into their business growth and talent strategy. 

The event kicked off with Ben Derham from the National Apprenticeship Service talking about the apprentice Scheme, apprenticeship reforms & levy, apprenticeship service, benefits and traineeships schemes. This presentation was followed by Anne-Marie from London South East Colleges advising on how to employ an apprentice and what is expected from your business. Our final speaker was Cheryl Jones from London Borough of Bexley speaking on the apprenticeship journey.

To conclude the day, there was a panel discussion and Q & A where businesses had a wealth of questions to ask. 

Many of the attendees came away from the event much more confident and knowing exactly what their next steps were with a few saying 'I have gained great knowledge'.
