New Forest Business Support Hour – Wednesday 4 November
4 November, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Join us – with a cup of tea or coffee – for an informal virtual networking meeting! An opportunity to update each other on how our businesses are progressing post-lockdown, to meet new people and to ask each other questions in a relaxed setting.
Today we welcome Leon Course, Apprenticeship Advisor at Solent Apprenticeships Hub, to update us on the opportunities that currently exist for your New Forest business to take advantage of incentive payments and support in employing an apprentice.
Up to £2,000 is available when you hire new apprentices between now and 31 January 2021. The payment is in addition to the existing £1,000 you get for taking on an apprentice who is aged 16-18 years old or under 25 and has an education, health or care plan, or who has been in the care of their local authority.
Join us to find out more. Support and advice is on hand with the opportunity to share experience and expertise with fellow New Forest businesses. We look forward to welcoming you online!
Please note that this is a virtual Zoom meeting and is free of charge.
You do need to book by 1400 on Wednesday. You will then receive an email just after 1400 with the Zoom meeting ID and password to enable you to join the meeting online.
