HFMA, HPMA and Skills for Health joint conference

The HPMA have been working alongside Skills for Health and HFMA on a dedicated healthcare apprenticeship event. This event will provide employers with support and advice in developing successful programmes, utilising levy funding effectively and understanding the new landscape of healthcare apprenticeships in England.
Why should you attend?
From April 2017 employers with a payroll over £3 million have been paying into a monthly apprenticeship levy of 0.5% of the payroll value. That money can only be spent on formal apprenticeship programmes with a registered training provider or employer provider. Any levy money not utilised is ‘lost’ on a rolling 24-month basis. Many organisations are expecting to start ‘losing’ their apprenticeship levy by the summer of 2019. It's critical that healthcare employers consider how apprenticeships can support their organisational development objectives and workforce challenges.
This event is a fantastic opportunity for senior finance and HR staff to learn more about the key benefits in developing successful apprenticeship programmes to support their workforce ambitions, and effectively utilise the levy funding, before it’s too late.
Book your place
This event is free for senior HPMA members to attend, although places are limited. Delegates wishing to attend should book on the Skills for Health website here.
