Employers urged not to miss briefing on latest apprenticeship changes

Employers are being reminded not to miss out on a free vital briefing being offered by Exeter College about important government changes in Apprenticeships.

Exeter College is running an Apprenticeship Levy Technical Briefing to bring clarity to the future of apprenticeships.

The briefing is taking place at Exeter City Football Club on Tuesday 14th February between 9am – 12pm.

It comes as the date draws nearer changes to Apprenticeships and as the level of interest continues to grow in the new era of Apprenticeship funding and delivery.

The briefing is the second in a series of events delivered by Exeter College to share its expertise with the business community of Devon and beyond.

The event comes after the college’s successful conference in November, attended by more than 220 delegates.

The half-day event will be led by the College and will consist of an overview of funding, the Digital Apprenticeship Service (DAS), curriculum and the latest key dates relating to the reforms, supported by a session led by Foot Anstey on hiring an Apprentice, plus an in depth Question and Answer session with industry experts. The event will be held at Exeter City Football Club in their new Heritage suite.

Mike Blakely, Director of Apprenticeships and Employer Engagement at Exeter College said: “We understand this can be a stressful time for employers. Our conference in November was hugely successful and as a result we have seen an increase in the number of enquiries regarding the upcoming changes.

“In order to address these questions and concerns, we have arranged this seminar to further inform and update on the reforms and changes, plus giving employers the opportunity to get further guidance specific to their business.”

He added "We have seen a 68% rise in apprenticeships here in Exeter and across Devon over the past four years and the opportunities open to the young are better than ever before, but to maintain these we will need to support our network of existing and new businesses significantly to ensure the benefits for all parties continue to grow.”

The seminar is on Tuesday 14th February between 9am – 12pm.

Spaces for the seminar are limited, To book your space at this event, or for more information, please call 01392 400800 or book online at http://bit.ly/AppChangeSeminar
