It is now two years since companies starting paying the Apprenticeship Levy and there are still many misconceptions and grey areas around the topic.  Lucy will be providing an update on the world of Apprenticeships including changes to funding, eligibility to train as an apprentice, providing clarity around the 20% 'off the job' requirement and the benefits of training apprenticeships within your organisation. There will be a focus on Finance and Accountancy apprenticeships although the general principles being covered are transferable to all sectors.  Appropriate for organisations currently training apprentices or looking to start and also for those who pay the levy, have spent it all, have surplus unused levy or are a co-investing organisation.     Details   Date: Tuesday 14th May 2019   Time: 8:00am for breakfast sandwiches and open networking, followed by a brief presentation, with Q&A and further networking until 9:30am   Venue: Advanced Manufacturing Park, Technology Centre, Brunel Way, Catcliffe, Rotherham, S60 5WG   The breakfast club is FREE to attend and you are very welcome to bring a guest or a colleague.   To confirm your attendance please contact Emma Legdon at Hart Shaw on T: 0114 251 8850 or email: It is essential that you pre-book as we regularly reach capacity at the venue.
