Corporate Round Table Events

CILT Round Table events provide a unique opportunity to hear the topic-specific views of industry’s thought-leaders regarding contemporaneous supply-chain and logistics issues.

Round Tables have been designed to provide a platform for industry thought-leaders and innovators to present their considered opinion and views concerning contemporary supply-chain and logistics issues and associated solutions for the benefit of CILT members and others. 

Round Table events are usually free-of-charge to attend and typically provide the delegate audience with an opportunity to interrogate the events speakers further. Opportunities to share views and experiences, discuss best-practise, network and possibly collaborate with other interested parties are common.   

For further information about marketing, advertising, administration and the costs associated with hosting a Round Table, please call  Tracey Young on 01536 740 136 or Daryl Chesney on 01536 740 118.

From 6th April 2017 there will be a significant change in the funding of apprenticeships in the UK which will have a major impact on organisations that plan to employ apprentices after this date.

The new approach to funding will see all organisations operating in the UK with a salary expenditure in excess of £3million, paying a levy of 0.5% of their total pay bill to the HMRC.  This approach is a game changer in the apprenticeship funding process. Businesses who fall into this new levy funding process will need to understand the impact this will have on their apprenticeship recruitment in the future. Furthermore, it is important that organisations know how they can derive optimum value from their levy pot.

With the introduction of the Trailblazer Standards, apprenticeships are becoming more job or vocational focused than ever before, whereby the employer will have more input into the training and development the apprentice will undertake throughout their respective programme. Again this is another radical change that all organisations that are involved with apprenticeships need to be aware of in the future.

Following lunch, delegates will be given the opportunity to discuss the changes and challenges to their respective organisations with fellow delegates in a workshop environment.

At the end of this event, delegates will have a clear understanding of the changes that will be introduced in the apprenticeships from April 2017, and be able to develop a more effective and value driven strategy in their apprenticeship programmes.

Supply Chain is a globalised market and consequently the fastest growing department in business today. The focus is on connecting people worldwide through collaboration and digitalisation. Right from the start of the purchase order through to the final delivery, we need to ensure that we have ticked all the boxes, considered the risks, united the silos and managed the terms of procurement. Do we have the means of providing a complete cockpit view of all the participants in each of our global chains?
