Who is doing what on apprenticeships, what trailblazers are there, what skills shortages do we have and where are the gaps? 

If you need the answers to these questions and more to help make the most of apprenticeships at all levels, if you want to be part of developing new standards and working in partnership to draw down money from the levy come and be part of this exciting event. 

Let’s lead the community in the East of England and make the best use we can of public money.

This session will include a mixture of key note speakers, workshops and market stalls, and will provide an opportunity to network with colleagues across the region and share information about the work you are doing to prepare for the Apprenticeship Levy.  A full agenda will be published in due course, but to reserve your space, for what is likely to be a very popular event, please book online below.

Audience: The event is aimed at elected members with an interest in this area, portfolio holders for resources/economic development/LGEP TU reps (particularly from RJC), Heads of HR/economic development officers, LGA colleagues and partners. Please note: If the event is oversubscribed priority will be given to Local Authorities in the East of England. 

Please note: When a place is booked a confirmation email will be sent with a link to a short survey. Responses will be used to help give facilitators an understanding of the audience and the scale of the challenges ahead.

If you have any queries, or if you would be interested in finding out more about our market stall packages, please contact Jayne Cole, Events Organiser, East of England LGA
