Commenting on the huge success of the awards evening, Jan Ryan, Operations Director at Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce Training said: “We are extremely proud of our apprenticeship award winners,   apprentices were selected from a highly competitive number of entrants, all of whom demonstrated a strong ability and desire to achieve.We know they will have a bright future ahead of them.

 “We are also reminding employers that changes to apprenticeships are imminent.   From 1st May 2017 employers will be required to contribute to an apprenticeship levy which will require all employers in the UK with a pay bill over £3million each year, to make an investment in apprenticeships. Non-levy paying employers will also be required to make a 10% contribution to the cost of apprenticeship training and the government will pay the rest (90%).” Jan concludes.
