Join the Department for Education at ‘Establishing and Delivering Teaching Apprenticeships’

On 9th May we are bringing together a selection of senior and academic staff from across schools, academies and MATs to hear from the Department for Education and Sir Andrew Carter as they discuss best practice methods for delivering high-quality teaching apprenticeships at our interactive forum in Central London.

In order to reach the government’s target of delivering 3 million new public sector apprenticeships, it is imperative that schools fully utilise the apprenticeship levy to deliver postgraduate teaching apprenticeships and ensure they are fully prepared for the financial implications of this extended training.

While sector leaders will share updates on the implementation of these apprenticeships and how to ensure these meet the requirements of the Teaching Standard, delegates will also hear best practice from institutions that can be applied and tailored for use to deliver outstanding training opportunities.

70% of places allocated. Register online or call 0203 770 6580 for further assistance.
