Chair: Richard Sellick Deputy Chair: Adam Greenwood
We are delighted to advise that Richard Sellick, Director of Business Programmes from East Riding College is the Chair of the Apprenticeship Working Group and Adam Greenwood, Director of Apprenticeships and Skills from Hull University is the Vice Chair.
The Humber LEP Apprenticeship Working Group brings together representatives engaged in the delivery of apprenticeship provision from across the Humber. The purpose of the group is to drive forward the quality and breadth of provision to meet the demands of employers and individuals. It also acts as a lobbying group to influence policy and strategy around apprenticeships and emerging vocational provision. The group provides a forum to share information and good practice.
Meetings of the Apprenticeship Working Group will take place on a quarterly basis.
