Hello PPMA members and friends

The Government’s new policy on Apprenticeships has been well publicised in the press and the Workforce Team at the LGA, have recently produced their May Workforce News Podcast that looks in more detail at the possible implications and impact for local authorities.

Hosted by Luann Donald, LGA’s Senior Workforce Advisor, the film features interviews with James Holden, Deputy Director, Local Government Policy, DCLG, Councillor Linda Van Den Hende, London Borough of Havering, Philip Bundy, Senior Employment Law Adviser, LGA and Nigel Carruthers, Senior Workforce Adviser, LGA.

It throws up some interesting points about this very hot topic and what might be in store for us in the future.
