2018 Apprenticeship Employer Conference

Your opportunity to make sure you are up to date with Apprenticeship training and understand how it could deliver results for you in 2018.

2017 was a year of change for Apprenticeship training with the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy and Government reforms.

Truro and Penwith College is hosting its 2018 Apprenticeship conference on 23rd February and through a blend of talks and workshops aims to support you in understanding Apprenticeship training, and whether it could deliver results for your business in 2018.

The College is uniquely positioned as an Ofsted Outstanding training provider, with access to a talent pool of outstanding students. Our partnerships with outstanding employers ensure our Apprentices have access to quality careers, and this conference will help you understand how you can deliver positive outcomes for your business and Apprentice learners.

With Apprenticeship Week taking place in March, this is the perfect time to consider Apprenticeship training, and will allow us to offer opportunities for you to get involved in Apprenticeship Week activities to promote your business and any vacancies you choose to open.
