Join us at the ECC to find out more about Apprenticeships, the levy and what it means for your organisation. From April 2017 all UK employers with a payroll of more than £3 million per year will pay a levy of 0.5% to support apprenticeships. At this event you'll learn what the levy is and how it can assist your business to grow and recruit new talent.

Find out how UWE Bristol works in partnership with regional colleges and employers to offer a range of apprenticeships. And take the opportunity to get expert advice and knowledge from us, having delivered Higher Apprenticeships across several sectors. There will be a Q and A session to answer any question you may have.

The event will cover:

  • An overview of the apprenticeship reforms
