The Developing Quality Apprenticeships conference series is brought to you by two leading organisations in the sector, Youth Employment UK and Amazing Apprenticeships.
Together, we have put together a 4-month developmental programme that will encourage participants to explore topics affecting youth employment and apprenticeships in parallel, so that we can collectively build a greater understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing the sector and be inspired to take action.

The conference series has been designed to build your knowledge over 4 different sessions running from September through to December 2021. Sign up to attend all 4 and receive a fantastic discount, or book onto the conference dates that suit you best.

Youth Employment Group (YEG0
Our conference organisers, LJ Rawlings, CEO of YEUK and Anna Morrison CBE, Director of Amazing Apprenticeships are both active Chairs of the Youth Employment Group (YEG) which was established in 2020 to help drive the UK’s response to the pandemic. The YEG has had a particular focus on the immediate and longer-term impacts of the coronavirus outbreak on the employment prospects of young people, in particular those facing the greatest challenges.
In July 2021, the Youth Employment Group released a paper – Levelling Up For Young People – through which a series of recommendations have been made to the government and senior policy officials.
