Apprenticeships Finance 101

Friday 15th June, 12.30 - 13.30

The first major milestone of the new apprenticeships era is passing: a year from the introduction of the levy. This also means we are now in the crucial 12-month period to May 2019, when unclaimed levy funding will start to be lost; something employers will want to avoid. Getting to grips with apprenticeships finance is a major step in the right direction. This webinar will provide the lowdown to anyone involved in apprenticeships finance and spending, from using the DAS and transfers of funds to forecasting levy funding and what you can and can’t spend it on.

Delivered by key members of Pearson’s apprenticeships team - Anne Ashworth, Head of Pearson Employee Apprenticeships, and Beth Briscoe, Employment Tax Manager - this webinar will be the 101 guide to apprenticeships finance you need to using your levy funding.

Making 20% off-the-job training work

Monday 25th June, 12.30 - 13.30

As set out in the government’s 2015 apprenticeships vision, the requirement for at least 20% off-the-job training to be undertaken by apprentices is one of the core principles underpinning a quality apprenticeship. Yet building this requirement into apprenticeship design and balancing it against business needs is a common and sometimes frustrating challenge for employers.

This webinar will shed light on how employers and training providers are approaching the requirement in practice and what exactly it means for delivery. Through the experiences and recommendations of our expert panel you will take away ideas for how to make 20% off-the-job work for you.

The panel:

  • Jonathan Bourne, Director of Damar Training
  • Karen Murray, Apprenticeships Officer at Pinsent Masons LLP
  • Anne Ashworth, Head of Pearson Employee Apprenticeships
