The Westminster Employment Forum are hosting the Growing participation and improving diversity in apprenticeships in England event in Central London in December. The policy conference will consider the Apprenticeship Levy and concerns over delays with achieving targets of three million apprenticeship starts. It will also seek to answer the question of how to realise the aim of improving apprenticeship starts for disadvantaged groups and reach the government’s target of increasing BAME participation by 20% by 2020.
