The Sheffield College will be exhibiting at the event in Manchester on November 8th and 9th as part of the Collab Group, which represents 34 of the leading colleges and college groups in the UK.
Staff will provide information about delivery of apprenticeship training on a national basis through the Collab Group colleges for the business and professional, construction and engineering sectors.
Andrew Hartley, Commercial Director, The Sheffield College, said: “Apprenticeships provide employers with the skilled workers of the future. They have enormous benefits for large employers that pay the apprenticeship levy as well as small to medium sized businesses. We are delighted to be part of the Collab Group, and encourage employers attending the CIPD event to visit the stand and find out more.”
The CIPD is the professional body for human resources and people. For information about the event, visit https://www.cipd.co.uk/learn/events-networks/conferences.
An apprenticeship levy was introduced in April 2017 for all public and private sector employers with a pay bill of more than £3 million a year.
The Sheffield College – which has a £321 million economic impact on the city annually - works with 850 employers to deliver apprenticeship programmes in a wide range of industry sectors for more than 2,000 apprentices.
