The government is committed to increasing the quantity and quality of Apprenticeships and has set a target of recruiting 3 million new start apprentices by 2020. The introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy, planned for implementation in April 2017, is designed to support the achievement of this ambitious aim and to put employers at the centre of the Apprenticeship system.
As engineering employers and providers, you are invited to attend a free NFEC and GTA England briefing session offering a unique opportunity to hear directly from specialists involved in Trailblazer apprenticeships development and delivery of pilots.
The newly launched Centre for Post-14 Education and Work has been created at UCL Institute of Education (IOE) to stimulate debate on, and improve the relationship between education, working life and active citizenship, internationally, nationally, and locally.
Our congratulations and best wishes to those 107 people recognised in the 2016 New Year Honours list for their service to education and children’s services and in particular to Ian Eva, Apprentice Manager at Jaguar Land Rover on his MBE for services to Vocational Education.
