Policy to Practice
Karen Woodward, Deputy Director, Apprenticeships and Employer Policy Implementation, National Apprenticeship Service
10:00 am to 14:25 (option to stay to 4 pm)
The Skills Funding Agency is hosting a series of Roadshows across the country for employers to take the policy information now available and turn this into efficient practices within their organisation to build a quality apprenticeship programme.
The events will focus on ensuring employers understand their accountabilities when supporting an apprentice through their programme, including negotiating prices with providers, looking for good support from providers and ensuring delegates are confident with completing the commitment stages on the apprenticeship Service.
For local authorities, there will be an additional workshop at the end of the day giving them an opportunity to explore procurement issues that may remain when seeking a new provider.
The following dates are for employers that are either a local authority, private sector or university employer. A series of other roadshows will be held for the wider Civil Service and Arms Lengths Bodies and the health sector. Further details will be issued to these delegates in a separate invite.
This invite entitles your business to nominate one delegate to attend the event and attendance is by INVITE ONLY so please do not forward this email onto another organisation or anticipate more than one member of your organisation attending. If you would like a second member of staff to attend, please email us back with this request and we will hold you on a waiting list. One week before the event, if there is sufficient capacity we will invite the waiting list to our roadshows.
We very much hope that you will gain further insight into how to set up your quality apprenticeship programme and begin to realise the benefits of this programme and utilising your levy.
