NTfW Annual Conference 2017

English | Cymraeg

Apprenticeships in Wales –
The Foundation of a future economy

will take place on Thursday 29 June 2017
at Cardiff City Football Stadium, Leckwith, Cardiff

In a year when the UK signalled its formal intention to leave the European Union, the challenges facing the Welsh economy have never been greater.

Although much of the discussion in 2017 has been about the subject of leaving, there has been a similar amount of discussion about something returning – Apprenticeships. With the advent of the apprenticeship levy, employers in Wales have never been so interested in engaging with the Apprenticeship Programme.

Both these things have happened at a time when Work-based Learning in Wales has reached a significant milestone in its development, most notably the professionalisation of the workforce.

Therefore, and with all these things in mind, this Conference aims to bring about a discussion between employers and providers so that we can all work together for the benefit of individuals, employers and the wider Welsh economy.
