Understanding Apprenticeships. Breakfast events for companies

Join the Black Country Skills Factory and the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) at one of our 2015 breakfast meetings aimed at helping businesses take full advantage of apprenticeships and gain impartial information and advice in the Black Country.

The event is FREE to attend and will run for approximately one hour on two dates as detailed below:

Tuesday 10 February 2015
7.45am for 8am start, The Village Hotel, Walsall

Thursday 12 February 2015

Further details and a final agenda will be circulated soon, but essentially the event is open to employers from any sector of the Black Country. The session will be introduced by Stewart Towe, Chairman of the Black Country LEP, and will cover:

  • Presentations from SME employers, with best practice advice on how apprenticeships have impacted their company
  • The business benefits of apprenticeships
  • How to get started
  • Where to find independent information on apprenticeships in the Black Country
  • Myths and facts about apprenticeships.

There will also be the opportunity to engage in an independent Q&A session and network with local companies from across the Black Country.

Breakfast is provided, and attendance at only one event is necessary.
