Our friends at Cambridge Spark are hosting a webinar to help support companies looking to use the apprenticeship Levy to upskill. We are hopefully going to get Cambridge Spark into the city, so if you are interested please let us know on firstname.lastname@example.org.
This webinar will use the National Apprenticeship Week theme of “Look Beyond” to share factual information about how apprenticeships can be used to increase diversity and bring business benefits to your organisation. Anyone with hiring, training or management responsibility for organisations of any size is welcome to attend. The focus will be on the diversity of subjects available and the range of people who can become apprentices. We will look at different training options, including degree apprenticeships and programmes delivered on-site.
At the end of the webinar, attendees should have an understanding of how they can look beyond the myths and stereotypes surrounding apprenticeships in order to make the most of these training programmes within their modern workplace. If you are building a data science team, please join us on 6th February to be part of the conversation.
