Join us at the Annual Apprenticeships Conference 2023 in Birmingham

We are proud to be the Headline Sponsor for this year’s AAC event, that’s bringing together key organisations and individuals within the apprenticeship sector.

03 March 2023

We are looking forward to an action-packed two days in Birmingham, meeting delegates face to face to talk about all things apprenticeships at the Annual Apprenticeships Conference 2023 (AAC).

AAC is widely regarded as the flagship national apprenticeship conference for employers and providers. This year’s event comes at a critical period for the UK as we steer through a challenging economic situation and learn what our new government has planned for apprenticeships.

In the run-up to this year’s conference, we can expect plenty of discussion around policy and funding changes to the apprenticeship system.

We’ll be at the conference on Stand A51, so please drop by for a coffee and a chat.
