The event will aid with an understanding of the recent reforms to apprenticeships policy, and how the University are developing new Degree Apprenticeship programmes in partnership with employers.
Six months on from the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy and wider apprenticeship reforms, attendees will have an opportunity to share their experiences and hear examples of best practice from employers in the Tees Valley.
As this event discusses an important topic affecting all business in our region, it is open to both members and Chamber non-members.
