Nescot is hosting a free workshop on Friday next week (February 12) aimed at helping businesses understand the impact of the government’s apprenticeship reforms.
The event will focus on the new apprenticeship standards, funding model and levy, and the timescales involved, including the national and regional impacts and how Nescot will react to the changes.
Keynote speakers include Teresa Frith, Senior Skills Policy Manager at the Association of Colleges, Sue Taylor, Network Manager at the Association of Learning Providers in Surrey, and Nescot Deputy Principal Carol Martin.
Head of Apprenticeships Joe Ballantine, who will also be speaking at the event, said he was looking forward to hosting the workshop.
“The changes are going to have a big impact, so we want to do everything we can to support our current and future business partners and make sure they’re informed and prepared,” he added.
“As a college we’ve been working hard to think about how we can make sure the reforms benefit our apprenticeship students as much as possible.”
The workshop, organised by the college’s apprenticeship team, will be held at the college from 1-4pm and include free refreshments.
It’s aimed at businesses that already employ an apprentice, as well as those considering taking on an apprentice who want to find out more.
