Delegates will examine the latest work coming from the Department for the Economy - including ApprenticeshipsNI - and policy priorities for the future.
Those attending will examine the latest thinking on developing skills and apprenticeships through the 14-19 age spectrum - including developing partnerships between schools, further and higher education, training providers and employers - and will look at methods for developing high-quality and flexible qualifications, including degree apprenticeships.
