Central Sussex College Welcomes Employers to its Open Evening
Central Sussex College welcomed local employers, along with prospective students and apprentices, to its Open Evening on Wednesday 7 June.
The College’s Business Development Team and Skills Advisers were on hand to talk to employers about the recent changes to Apprenticeships, while the Job Shop explained how they can help with recruitment by matching candidates to local Apprenticeship opportunities.
Funding reforms have introduced an Apprenticeship Levy for large businesses with an annual payroll of £3 million or more. The ways that Apprenticeships are structured are also being updated, with new, employer-led standards replacing existing programmes. The College is already using the new standard in many of its offerings. And the College’s Job Shop can help with recruitment by matching candidates to local Apprenticeship opportunities.
Apprenticeships are changing, in ways that will affect business large and small. Whether they are hiring new staff or looking to train existing team members, employers need to be prepared. The Skills Advisers at Central Sussex can help. Visit centralsussexcollege.ac.uk/apprentice for more information.

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."

As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year.
