ApprenticesSymposium Events welcomes three new speakers to the popular (almost sold out!) Apprentices & School Leaver Conference 2014.

This year’s event aims to help you attract the brightest talent, from schools and colleges, to apprenticeship programmes.

The speakers are specialising in helping you understand the changes in education and political landscapes, including funding and will show you step by step how to run and set a successful apprenticeship programme.

New speakers include:

  • Colin Campbell-Austin, Head of Talent and People Development, Telegraph Media Group (TMG):
    Colin is all about helping people to have the opportunities to develop themselves so their talent can shine. He and his team are responsible and manage the suite of the TMG Academy’s Future Talent Programmes. The team also mentor and help develop TMG’s staff so their goals can be achieved, whichever sector of the business they work in. On the conference day, Colin will put together a discussion panel along with Claire Paul, ‎Head of Entry Level Talent, BBC to show you how to select the right KPIs to measure the value of your apprenticeship programme. 
  • Emily Austin, Senior Emerging Talent Manager – Apprenticeship & School to Work Programmes, Lloyds Banking Group: Emily is currently leading the Group’s approach to engage with schools, creating innovative propositions to support student pre-employability development and transition into work. She also managed the design and delivery of a Higher Apprenticeship programme providing a genuine alternative to University in a number of disciplines including Digital, Marketing, IT and Project Management. At the event, Emily will demonstrate how the apprentice offer should evolve to match business needs and stay succesful.
  • Tony Allen, Deputy Director Large Companies, Skills Funding Agency: Join Tony at the event to examine and understand the changes in education, standards and funding. Also, learn about future reforms and outcomes from the Richard Review. A session not to be missed!
