Business leaders will be able to learn more about the government’s apprenticeship reforms at a Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce event next week.
The Apprenticeship Reforms Update event is being hosted by Birmingham city centre based law firm Pinsent Masons on Tuesday 29 November.
Greg Dean, Head of Large Employer Engagement Strategy at the Skills Funding Agency, will outline the key aspects of the reforms and discuss how businesses of all shapes and sizes will be affected.
Claire Hawker from the NEC Group will also discuss her experiences after developing the Live Event Rigging Apprenticeship through an employer Trailblazer group.
A Trailblazer is made up of a group of employers who work together to design new apprenticeship standards for occupations within their sectors.
Delegates will also be invited to discuss key questions and feedback their perspectives on the reforms.
Elliot Mason (pictured), policy and patronage adviser, said: “The Government’s upcoming Apprenticeship Reforms represent some of the most substantial changes to vocational training in recent history and will impact upon businesses of all shapes and sizes.
“With the changes set to come into effect from April next year, it is vital the business leaders take the time to understand the reforms and consider the opportunities that will be open to their organisations.”
The event is taking place between 7.30am and 9.30am. It is free to attend.
