Are you ready for the Apprenticeship Levy?
The Furniture Makers’ Company, the furnishing industry’s charity, is organising a one-day conference to inform the UK furnishing industry about the implications of the forthcoming Apprenticeship Levy and wider educational issues affecting the sector.
The Bridging the Gap conference will feature expert speakers from industry to demystify the levy and educate businesses as to how they can access the levy’s funding to develop and train their workforce by working with recognised training centres and colleges.
Other sessions will focus on promoting the industry to young people, including what businesses can do to attract university graduates into employment within the furnishing sector.
The event will also update industry on the development of the Level 3 Apprenticeship Standard – an initiative spearheaded by the Employer Trailblazer Group led by Senator International.
Tickets to attend are £45 + VAT and lunch is included. You can book your place here.
