East Midlands NAS Launch to Colleges
Venue: EMFEC Nottingham
Date: Tuesday 6th October 2009
The Launch of the National Apprenticeship Service to Colleges, East Midlands
The National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) has end to end responsibility for Apprenticeships in England. Building on an incredible renaissance in Apprenticeships, the NAS has been designed to increase the number of Apprenticeship opportunities and provide a dedicated, responsive service for both employers and learners. We are simplifying the process of recruiting an Apprentice through Apprenticeship vacancies, an online web-based matching service.
Apprenticeships bring considerable value to organisations, employers, individuals and the economy. Businesses across the country are now increasingly realising the enormous benefits that Apprenticeships create, not only in terms of a highly skilled workforce but also by boosting productivity and staff retention.
We know employers directly benefit from these highly trained apprentices. The overwhelmingly positive results we have seen demonstrate how important it is for us to ensure the NAS maintains and builds this wonderful programme in the East Midlands.
We all have the common aim of driving up the number of Apprenticeships in the region and with this in mind, we, in partnership with the Association of Colleges, would like you to join us at the Launch to Colleges within the East Midlands, our aim is to explain how the NAS works; for you to meet our new team; to examine how the NAS fits in the wider MoG changes and the links to other other successor bodies but most importantly to look at ways we can work together to achieve the increasing ambitions for Apprenticeships.
Our invitation is extended to the Principal, the Apprenticeship lead and a Marketing representative of Colleges in the East Midlands.
