Dear GEM colleagues,

 

This post is only likely to be of interest to colleagues who have a professional interest in Apprenticeship reform and new pathways into heritage careers. You may wish to share with any HR or policy colleagues, as appropriate, if they are leading on related work for your organisation.

 

I’ve been asked by Creative and Cultural Skills to draw your attention to their forthcoming March conference; see the CCS Newsletter below. Pauline Tambling, Chief Executive, usefully and clearly sets out the ground to be covered and why you might be interested here.

 

As part of a built environment professional network, myself and a colleague are organising a much smaller, informal event specifically for people closely involved in creating the infrastructure for cultural heritage Apprenticeships in England, to share experience to date. For example, Historic England have been leading a Heritage Investigator Trailblazer and craft- and museum-related Trailblazers are in development. It’s a working meeting and the aims are pasted below. It’s in central London on 15 March. We a limited number of spaces (- really - ) but would like to include people who have knowledge to share; if you’re interested please do drop me a line off list to explain why you’d be interested in attending.

 

If you haven’t been following Apprenticeship reform but are interested in knowing more, there’s lots of information on gov.uk and HLF’s recent live chat covered a lot of useful ground: https://www.hlf.org.uk/community/live-chats/apprenticeships-12-january-2017

 

Best wishes,

Jo

Hosted by the Heritage2020 Capacity Building Working Group, this will be an informal day of presentations and discussion designed to help take the mystery out of apprenticeship reform for the cultural heritage sector.

Aims of the day:

·      To update participants on the Apprenticeship Levy and Apprenticeship reform in England, including the Trailblazer process, to ensure a shared level of knowledge and understanding

·      To network and develop partnerships to take the new Apprenticeships initiative forward

·      To share experience and practice in developing new Apprenticeship standards to date

·      To establish next steps and priorities for the cultural heritage sectors.
