Apprenticeship Levy & Modern Apprentices – Event

Apprenticeship Levy and Modern Apprentices

The Third Sector Employability Forum (TSEF) are funding a seminar on Thursday 18th January 2018 from 10am-3pm at The Prince’s Trust Wolfson Centre, 15 Carlton Place, Glasgow G5 9JP.

While the seminar is entitled Third Sector Workshop on Apprenticeship Levy it follows on from the event Scottish Care co-hosted in October alongside colleagues from CCPS and SCVO and we have had input to the day’s programme.

We would encourage members to come along, find out more about the Levy and Modern Apprenticeships, share experiences of both and help us to develop our approach as a sector.
