Presenting on: Growing your Talent Pipeline: The Apprenticeship Family
Synopsis: Jane’s presentation will offer an overview of the Apprenticeship Family and how apprenticeships can help businesses to develop the people and skills they need for the future. For employers, apprenticeships can support the development of a long term talent pipeline and address skills shortages.
Apprenticeships play a key role in setting people up for success in their careers by giving them practical work based skills and industry recognised qualifications while employed and earning.
