About AAC 2021
The 7th Annual Apprenticeship Conference (AAC) will provide business-critical updates, advice, and keynotes for those involved in the delivery of apprenticeships. AAC, is recognised as the flagship national apprenticeship conference for employers and providers. AAC 2021 will take place online, utilising our virtual event platform, Hopin. The conference agenda has been designed to be a part of your day rather than back-to-back sessions over two days and to enable this we will be programming the conference content over five days, so you can continue to run your usual work life too. Broadly speaking we will have a keynote session, workshops and an optional ‘Deep Dive’ discussion each day. In addition, we will have our Sponsors and Exhibitors with whom we will be working closely to provide an interactive and meaningful experience for all. AAC is the must-attend apprenticeship conference of the year.

NOT TO BE MISSED

AAC will take place during a critical period for the UK following the Covid-19 pandemic. Prime minister Boris Johnson has made clear that apprenticeships and skills will form a key pillar of his government’s recovery strategy. The full impact of the pandemic, economically, is not yet clear. Although we can already start to see the impact on apprenticeship recruitment and redundancies. In the run-up to this year’s conference, we can expect to see some major policy and funding changes to the apprenticeships system proposed and implemented.

AAC 2021 will provide a timely and essential gathering for those involved with the design & delivery of apprenticeships. AAC designed for Further and Higher Education Providers, Local Authorities and all Apprenticeship Employers.
