Video – The future of apprenticeships

Join City & Guilds and Chemistry to find out how to take advantage of the new apprenticeship levy by bringing great apprentices into your business and getting the best from them.

The new apprentice levy is hitting businesses across the UK and a lot of people are getting nervous. We think there’s a huge opportunity there though.

The apprenticeships programme is widely regarded as successful and provides benefits to both employers and apprentices. For apprentices, it can equip them with the skills needed for a successful career and be a genuine alternative to going to University or even an opportunity to combine an apprenticeship with higher education. For employers, it can provide a highly efficient and effective means of developing the skills of their workforce.

With the government announcing the new apprenticeships levy we discuss what the future holds.
