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.
Date: 5 December 2019
Location: Central London - tba
Ticket price: £230
The event will attract keynote speakers including Kathryn Porter from Hilton Worldwide and Simon Broad from the BBC who will encourage discussion on what can be done to persuade employers to take an active interest in apprenticeships. Consideration will also be given to improving strategies for the government, employers and the FE sector to drive growth in apprenticeship enrolment.
The Westminster Employment Forum has released a detailed draft agenda that provides information about the presentations and discussions taking place over the morning.
