You may be aware that the first Leicester Apprenticeship Hub Graduation Ceremony will take place at De Montfort Hall, Leicester on 18 June 2015, from 2pm-4pm, to recognise and reward the success of apprentices across England, focusing on advanced and higher levels.

As part of the celebrations, an Apprenticeships event for employers will follow, ‘Upskill your business for success’, from 4pm-6pm, 18th June 2015 at DeMontfort Hall. I would like to invite you to this event, to help you to find out more about Advanced and Higher Apprenticeships. We know that businesses now, and in the future, require more highly skilled people. Advanced and Higher apprenticeships are a great combination of on the job training and employees studying for a higher level qualification to give you the knowledgeable workforce your business needs.

You will be welcomed to this event with a canapé and drinks reception (4.00pm-4.30pm), where you will have the opportunity to meet with other employers and apprenticeship leads. You will hear more about the business benefits of advanced and higher apprenticeships and how they can help you grow your own talent by developing a motivated, skilled, qualified and professional workforce.

From 4.30pm-5.30pm, hosted by the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) Director Corin Crane, ‘Upskill your Business for Success’ will include guest speakers such as:
