AELP Autumn Conference 2016

This is under construction. More details to follow.

Opportunities and challenges from new government’s big wave of reform

Date: Tuesday, 1 November 2016
Venue: The Palace Hotel, Manchester
When providers meet for the AELP Autumn Conference, consultations will have already started on the Apprenticeship Levy and legally protecting the Apprenticeship brand. The review of Traineeships may also be near completion. In addition to the future of these core programmes, we will also debate the impact of the Budget’s measures on a National Living Wage, Youth Obligation, ending of the ESA differential and reducing working tax credits as plans develop for the next tranche of welfare to work programmes in 2017.

Furthermore the Chancellor has since the election pressed the accelerator for English devolution which could lead to major changes on how skills and employment programmes are commissioned and all this being undertaken when the FE sector is subject to a new series of area reviews.

The indicators behind this significant reform programme point to growth opportunities for providers although the protection of quality provision within the spending restraints will present challenges that providers can meet again. Our 1-day conference will identify what matters the most to help AELP members update their strategic business planning. You can’t afford to miss it!
