We'll be at World of Learning 2016

Come and chat to us

We’ll be at Stand H20 right in the Apprenticeship Zone for the whole show, where you can come and talk to our experts on setting up an apprenticeship programme, how to make the most of the apprenticeship levy, or anything related to career transition or early careers programmes, such as traineeships, school-to-work, and graduate schemes.

You might even get an invitation to one of our upcoming exclusive learning and networking events in Manchester and Birmingham!

Talking about L&D

On Wednesday 19 October, at 9.10am, our learning consultancy director Rachel Kuftinoff will be on stage with Joe Tidman, director of learning capabilities at GSK, kicking off the World of Learning conference. They will be talking about how to create an agile L&D function, covering how to deliver an agile global learning strategy, handling cultural shifts, and learning standardisation with learner personalisation.

Rachel has been involved in adult learning for over 25 years, and has a broad and varied background in L&D within global organisations. She has significant experience in centralising L&D for global and EMEA organisations, which includes all the governance and activities associated with that transition.

Joe, who has kindly supported Capita Learning Services at previous learning events, leads several global L&D programmes at GSK, including capabilities, the business skills curriculum, and on-boarding. He has worked at GSK for over 15 years, and has, in the past, designed and set up a global supply chain academy, run graduate programmes, and led various talent, OD, and HR activities.

Talking about the apprenticeship levy

At 2pm on the same day, our apprenticeship expert, Tammie Harwin will be discussing how to make the most of the apprenticeship levy as part of the Apprenticeship Zone seminar programme.

Tammie will be presenting the latest changes to the apprenticeship levy legislation, and provide insight on how you can get the best return on investment from the money you pay in. The apprenticeship levy comes into force in April 2017. This means that if your business has a salary bill of more than £3m a year, you will have to start paying into a training fund that can only be spent on apprenticeships. But rather than looking at this as just another tax to pay, see it as an opportunity to create a positive impact on your business. By approaching the levy in a strategic way, you can ensure the money is invested in the right place for your organisation.

We hope to see you at the show. We’re looking forward to meeting you!
