ACAS Apprenticeships through the Ages

ACAS Apprenticeships through the Ages

What are apprentices, what do they do, and where do you find them?

Acas is joined by leading experts to talk you through the introduction of the new Apprenticeship Levy, what it means for your organisation and how you can maximise the opportunities created by this Government initiative.

This half day event will explain how the Apprenticeship Levy works in practice and how it can benefit your business.
