22 February: The Westminster Employment Forum seminar Where Next for Apprenticeships Policy in England? takes place in London, UK. As the government works towards meeting its commitment to create 3 million apprenticeships, it discusses the future for this policy in England, informed by findings from an inquiry which found the government has not set out how it will use the increase in apprenticeship numbers to deliver improvement in productivity. Delegates will consider further action that can be taken to improve the quality of apprenticeships, and the key priorities for the new Institute for Apprenticeships which will regulate apprenticeships and ensure that standards respond to the changing needs of business. Other sessions consider key challenges surrounding apprenticeship funding ahead of the introduction of the apprenticeship levy in April 2017, and the next steps that can be taken to change the culture and prestige of apprenticeships in England, and build on the ‘Get in, go far’ campaign.

Sessions also include discussion on increasing the number of higher (degree equivalent) apprenticeships; the future funding arrangements for apprenticeships – in light of discussions over how the new UK-wide apprenticeship levy will impact Wales; and next steps in development of new frameworks for the standards and assessment of apprenticeships in Wales.

9 February: The Westminster Higher Education Forum seminar Promoting Competition and Regulating the Higher Education Market takes place in London, UK. With a number of measures contained within the Higher Education and Research Bill being designed to further open England’s HE market up to new providers this conference brings together key policy-makers and stakeholders from across the HE sector to discuss the future shape of the market. Under discussion are the likely impact of specific measures contained within the Bill such as liberalising access to the ‘university’ title and degree awarding powers as well as the requirement for all providers to submit a ‘student protection plan’ in preparation for a possible market exit. Other sessions examine trends in the market such as the growth of further education in HE and satellite campuses converting to independent full university status and also potential changes following the Bill such as a greater number of foreign-based providers entering the market - particularly if the UK were to leave the European single market - or groupings of FE colleges collaborating to assume their own awarding powers. Further topics for discussion include whether the Teaching Excellence Framework will drive competition and the impact that removing the student number cap has had on the market. Guest of Honour is Jenny Bradley, Assistant Director, Higher Education Market Reform, Department for Education.

Other sessions consider key challenges surrounding apprenticeship funding ahead of the introduction of the apprenticeship levy in April 2017, and the next steps that can be taken to change the culture and prestige of apprenticeships in England, and build on the ‘Get in, go far’ campaign.
