The Real Conversation
The events are highly interactive and engaging with questions alongside facilitated table discussions. It is vital that we get the right mix of people at the event so we have a balanced view across all stakeholders.
The next 'Real Conversation' will be taking place on:
Thursday 19 March 2015, Venue Cymru, Llandudno
Discussion topic: Apprenticeship for young people – equality and diversity.
Who should get involved
We want the Real Conversation to reach everyone and the more people that get on board, the bigger and better the conversation will be.
For young people
This event is a chance for young people to speak directly to decision makers and ‘tell them like it is’ on the difficulties they have encountered accessing the Apprenticeship Programmes. In particular we are interested in hearing from young people from black, ethnic groups and those with disabilities on their experience of the Apprenticeship Programme.
This event is a fantastic opportunity for employers to benchmark their existing equality and diversity practices. Employers will hear directly from young people about the potential barriers they face and have time to share their own experiences and concerns. They can also take advantage of networking with their peers and policy decision makers.
For other professionals
We would like to hear your experiences of any engagement and participation barriers faced by particular learning groups,and to discuss how we together we can overcome any barriers.
