CfL Events: Apprentices, Leitch, Training and Adult Skills

The Role of Apprentices in the Recession
12 February 2009, 2pm – 4pm

This session will look at the contribution apprenticeship can make to the economy in the context of the current recession. Specifically, it will consider the role of apprenticeships and the link to raising the participation age to the age of 18, offering skilled opportunities for 18-24 year olds, reducing unemployment amongst 16-24 year olds and expanding training opportunities for adults over 25.

We are delighted that David Way the National Director of Apprenticeships at the LSC will provide a keynote presentation. Tricia Hartley, Chief Executive of the Campaign, will chair the event. As usual delegates will have plenty of opportunities to discuss the issues and raising questions.

This event is priced at £99 plus VAT.
