Generously sponsored by the LGA, this 1-day event facilitates the sharing of knowledge, experiences and challenges relevant to the successful implementation and delivery of apprenticeships in the south west region.
LGA and SfA viewpoints will allow participants the opportunity to clarify areas of concern whilst a case study from the NHS, CPD and networking activities will enable participants to benefit from discussing areas of joint interest, focus on ideas and next steps.
There will be opportunities to listen and contribute to sessions from:
Local Government Association: Nigel Carruthers, Senior Advisor, will set the scene from a Government, HR and implementation perspective
Skills Funding Agency: Scott Hatwood, Senior National Account Manager (South West), will set the scene from a programme design and delivery perspective
Health Education England: Amanda Shobrook, Widening Participation and Apprenticeship Lead, will present a case study focusing on the NHS approach to the Levy, Apprenticeship Standards, workforce challenges and lessons learned
The day also includes opportunities for CPD for both HR and L&D colleagues - focusing on areas relevant for each function.
Ending the day on a collaborative note, L&D and HR colleagues can join a networking group to explore and share apprenticeship challenges and experiences whilst also considering the outcomes of the day, focus on ideas and next steps.
