Making Skills Work for Employers in Lochaber – Work Based Learning / The Apprenticeship Family

 

Wednesday 29th March 2017 4pm-6pm: West Highland College UHI – Fort William, Carmichael Way, Fort William, PH33 6FF

 

Europe’s highest performing economies are supported by strong systems of work based learning, contributing to low unemployment and fewer skill shortages. Whether your business will be paying the Apprenticeship Levy from April 2017, or not, West Highland College UHI and Skills Development Scotland are hosting an event for employers of all sizes to inform them of developments and opportunities with the Apprenticeship Family, key products supporting work based learning, an outline of local provision and what employers who are engaged in Modern Apprenticeships value most about them.

 

Industry-led Foundation, Modern and Graduate Level Apprenticeships are beneficial to employers for a variety of reasons and attending this event in Fort William will ensure that your business has up-to-date information on what is available. Hear about how the Apprenticeship Family can support your business and what you need to do to make sure young people are part of your business’ future success.

 

Make sure your business benefits from the range of apprenticeships and support available by registering on Eventbrite https://mswewbllochaber.eventbrite.co.uk to attend. This event is one of a series being run throughout Scotland in 2017 –  https://www.apprenticeships.scot/
