Raising the Bar – “Higher Level Apprentices and the Importance of Continual Learning for Success”

Thursday 22 February, 2pm-5pm, Sincil Bank Football Stadium

The event will address the important opportunity that you may have with the Apprenticeship Levy and will look into the topic of learning whilst earning. It will give you practical strategies to take your teams forwards while using government levy money to fund the learning.  

We will have an in depth focus on the new apprenticeship levy, to de-mystify how it works and how companies who pay it can utilise it for the good of their staff. Furthermore, there will be a great chance to look at how smaller, non-levy paying organizations can use the levy to access 90% contribution to degree courses in Leadership and Management – a once in a generation opportunity to use government funds to train up your teams!

Who Is It For?

  • Departmental Managers
  • HR/Training/development managers
  • Company owners/CEOs
  • Anyone personally interested in a degree in Leadership and Management

What’s In It For You?

  • Strategies to ensure that higher-level learning takes place in your organisation – without spending any money from your funds
  • Knowledge and practical guidance on how to use the government funding streams in the apprenticeship arena
  • A chance to see the VIP Lounge, have a short tour of Lincoln City Football Club and get a completely different perspective on a familiar topic
