Apprenticeship Levy Conference

26 January 2017 at 9:00 until 15:00

Gloucestershire College and Harrison Clark Rickerbys are working in partnership to host an informative conference, designed to ensure you are up to date with the upcoming reforms, give you practical guidance on how to prepare for the changes, and give you a greater understanding of the law of governing the employment of apprenticeships.


Whether or not you will be paying the levy, this conference will give you the opportunity to speak to experts in the field and get advice on how you can get the most from apprenticeships.


The conference will include:


  • Apprenticeship reforms - what is changing in 2017
  • Education reforms and the skills plan - by Sue Steed, Vice Principal at Gloucestershire College
  • The financial implications for levy and non-levy payers - by Andy Bates, CFO at Gloucestershire College
  • The new digital apprenticeship service (DAS)
  • Legal guidance on employing apprentices - by Jenny Jones, Head of Employment at Harrison Clark Rickerbys, and Rachel Parkin, Senior Associate at Harrison Clark Rickerbys
  • Group discussions and Q&A


Who should attend?
