This FREE event will appeal to small to medium-sized enterprises and apprenticeship providers based in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, Derby and Derbyshire.

The event is for anyone who has an interest in apprenticeships and the benefits they can bring to business and wider society.

The event has an international flavour with presenters from Germany and Canada talking about their apprenticeship systems and how they work with employers. It will review the latest information on Apprenticeship Policy in England 12 months on from the apprenticeship reforms implemented on 1 May 2017 and listen to what is next for SMEs and apprenticeships to help innovate by attracting new skills and future leaders to their workforce.

As part of the agenda you will learn about a business support programme funded by Erasmus+ that has been delivered in Bulgaria, Poland and the UK to help remove barriers to SMEs recruiting into apprenticeships. You will hear directly from employers that have engaged with the programme on their experiences of apprenticeships and the benefits they have brought to their business.
