BUSINESS leaders can learn how apprentices could benefit their company during a breakfast event in Clevedon.

To take place at Clevedon Hall in Victoria Road from 8-10am on March 14, it is being held as part of National Apprenticeship Week.

As an Ambassador for the National Apprenticeship Service and one of England’s Top 100 Employers of apprentices, Graham Turner, North Somerset Council’s chief executive officer, will talk about the benefits of apprenticeships.

Andrew Scott (North Somerset Business Leader managing director) and Rob Brooks (Midas Group director) will share how they are building apprenticeships into their workforce development plans and Mark Howard (NAS divisional apprenticeships director) will talk about what support NAS can give to businesses looking into apprenticeships.

Representatives of the NAS and employers who have already developed apprenticeship programmes will also be on hand.
