Mind the Gap! A wake-up call for business on Apprenticeships
Essex Chambers of Commerce, PMS International House, Cricketers Way, Basildon, SS18 1ST
Thursday 7th March 2019 9:30am - 4:30pm
“Mind the Gap!” A warning many of us know from travelling on London Underground but why is this relevant to business? Well, how many companies are aware of the gaps in their business with regards to skills and apprenticeships?
Our 'Mind the Gap!' workshops are designed to provide you with all the information and assistance you need, as a non-levy payer, to tap into the levy funds to support the growth of your business. Not only will this enable you to grow your own talent you could be giving a young person an opportunity of a lifetime via an apprenticeship.
Brought to you by S Potter Talent, the main aim of the workshop is to get you thinking on how best to future proof your business using apprenticeships and utilising the apprenticeship levy. While most have heard of the apprenticeship levy, do you really understand what it means to you as a business?
