With the funding levy for apprenticeships introduced in April 2017 and an increasing support from the Scottish Government for organisations to take on apprentices, now is the time to look at how to establish a successful apprenticeship programme.

Our Delivering Apprenticeships in Scotland course is designed to provide you with guidance on the current policy and funding arrangements, as well as to teach how to develop and implement your own successful apprenticeship programme. Learn how best to promote apprenticeships to prospective apprentices, gain an understanding of the positive impact that apprentices can have on your organisation and see how to develop your organisation’s culture so that apprentices can thrive.

Hear from a number of best practice case studies and get involved in interactive discussions with like-minded people, leaving the day confident of your ability to maximise retention and progression of apprentices, whilst also ensuring that the needs of your organisation are met.
