The Government recently confirmed the details as to how apprenticeships will be funded as of April next year. The new funding policy will reinforce the new apprenticeship levy, which aims to increase apprenticeship opportunities and help more people gain the necessary skills to have a successful career. The changes endeavour to give more support for younger apprentices and disadvantaged people, along with more flexibility to employers.

The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) understands the affect these changes will have within the security and fire sectors. In light of this, they will be hosting a series of breakfast briefings to help employers in the security sector understand what’s changing and how their businesses can benefit from employing apprentices.

The free-to-attend briefings, which are hosted in partnership with Skills for Security, will discuss the apprenticeship levy in more detail and advise on how the BSIA and Skills for Security can help employers adapt to these changes.

The first briefing was in Birmingham on 7th December and after a very sucessfull event the BSIA and Skills for Security have announced 2 more briefing dates, they are:

Tuesday 10th January 2017, 8:30am – 10:30am – The Atrium, UBM, 240 Blackfriars Rd
London SE1 8BF
Thursday 19th January 2017, 8:30am – 10:30am – The Holiday Inn Runcorn, Wood Ln
