With the many different employer incentives available, are you confused about which options are best for your business? This virtual event brings together the different providers to explain the current employment schemes and funding opportunities in more detail, allowing you to make an informed choice on how you can invest in your existing workforce by upskilling and help you to recruit young people. We know how challenging this time is for us all, even more so for our future workforce. With these incentives, you can support your business and help provide an opportunity for a young person who is entering the labour market at this difficult time.

During the virtual event you will hear from a range of experts who will be able to answer your questions and detail how these incentive schemes could work together to help strengthen your workforce as we move forward through this economic recovery period. A local employer who currently uses some of these schemes will provide their view on how these have benefited his business.

Don’t worry if you are not in the place to hire right now, there are alternative options to upskill your existing workforce regardless of age.

The experts presenting are:

  • Highland Council - Highland Employment Recruitment Offer (HERO)
  • Inverness College UHI - Modern Apprenticeships & Flexible Workforce Development Fund (FWDF)
  • Skills Development Scotland - Apprenticeship Funding  
  • Inverness Chamber of Commerce - Kickstart 
  • Robert Gordon University - Graduate Apprenticeships

There will also be an opportunity for Q&A with the panel.
