Throughout the year we host a series of FREE Business Breakfast and Business Twilight sessions to give local businesses and organisations the opportunity to find out about apprenticeships and a wide range of commercial short courses designed to enhance skills and meet statutory requirements. We will also be sharing information about the recent apprenticeship reforms and how these will impact on businesses, both large and small. These events also give us the opportunity to share information about available funding for training and for you to tell us about your training needs and interests.
