North Norfolk District Council is hosting a free workshop at its offices in Cromer on Tuesday 12 March from 4pm – 6.30pm to encourage employers to learn more about the benefits of apprenticeships in the workplace.

The event is aimed at organisations who already employ apprentices as well as those looking for more information about what is involved. Attendees will find out how to maximise the apprenticeship levy including transferring funds to other organisations.

Apprenticeships can play a key role in helping a business grow, as well as improving the overall skills level across the district. Training providers, apprenticeship training agencies and Apprenticeships Norfolk Network will be at the free event, and businesses will be able to learn about the funding opportunities available to them should they choose to offer apprenticeships.

Leader of North Norfolk District Council, Cllr. Sarah Bütikofer, said: “Apprenticeships are a fantastic route into the world of work, allowing young people to gain qualifications and valuable skills at the same time

“I am so impressed by the apprentices we have working as part of the team here at the District Council, their energy and enthusiasm is infectious. I would encourage anyone thinking about employing or becoming an apprentice to come along and see what it is all about.”

Attendees will hear from an employer who has successfully recruited an apprentice and from a former apprentice who has completed their training programme and has subsequently been recruited to a substantive role within the same organisation. Training providers will be on hand to offer information on a range of qualifications, including business administration, digital marketing, construction skills and food production.

Light refreshments will be available.

To book a place, please email or call 01263 516331.
