Ten senior leaders from the SCTP membership met in Lewes on Wednesday to share experiences, discuss the state of the sector and to agree actions for improvement. There was much discussion about issues such as apprenticeship and AEB procurement processes, clarity of 20% off-the-job training rules, sub-contracting rules, Traineeship take up and more. There was a determination to lobby through national groups such as Holex and AELP to try to bring some sense and clarity to national policy decisions. The next meeting will take place on the 31st January 2018, 10.30-12.30 at Sussex Cricket, Hove. This will be opened up for bookings nearer the time on a first come first served basis.
