Apprenticeships Webinar

EDGE Apprentice tv ad_24285

The webinar will take place on Wednesday 27th April 4pm – 5pm

The way in which we grow and produce our food is changing and the Agri-Tech strategy
is leading the way in helping growers adapt, change and take advantage of the new
technologies. However, these technologies will count for nothing unless we have the
skills we need with the workforce.

A key component of developing our future workforce will be the apprenticeship
programme and this webinar aims to help businesses understand three main considerations.

  1. Recruiting and training the next generation workforce to support developments in Agri-Tech and future protability.
  2. Current changes to apprenticeships and how they will affect your business.
  3. How to get involved and take advantage of the opportunities apprenticeships can bring.
