Apprenticeship Trailblazer breakfast briefings

Smarter apprenticeships

Join one of our Apprenticeship Trailblazer breakfast briefings

Apprenticeships are changing rapidly. From major changes to funding and the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy to the replacement of existing frameworks with new Trailblazer standards, many of which offer qualifications up to and beyond degree level. In addition to these policy changes we are seeing a major rebrand of the image and reputation of Apprenticeships, with more and more professions realising the benefits they can bring and increasing amounts of employers opening their doors to a more diverse workforce.

Professional Services, including Accountancy and Finance, have been one of the sectors to embrace the Trailblazer initiative and new standards are being made available to use.

Join Kaplan and our industry experts, including representatives from KPMG (the employer lead on Accountancy Trailblazers), ICAEW, ACCA, CIMA and Leadership Through Sport and Business at one of our informative breakfast briefings that will cover:

  • An update from an industry expert on the changing landscape with Apprenticeships in the Accountancy and Finance sectors including the introduction of Apprenticeships at higher and degree levels.
  • Practical considerations to consider when adopting Trailblazer standards – how do they differ from existing Apprenticeships, what are the timescales, how does the funding work, will the Levy make a difference?
  • Challenges and considerations when recruiting apprentices and school leavers in this ever changing climate, including strategies for school engagement, improving social mobility and making your scheme stand out.

There will also be opportunities to network and ask our panel questions.
