A radical change is occurring to improve the skills of the UK’s workforce. Since April 2017, the government’s Apprenticeship Levy requires private and public firms that pay more than £3 million in wages to contribute 0.5% of their annual payroll into a fund that will support both new and existing apprenticeships. The scheme was introduced to diminish the ongoing skills gap and give employers more control over training to suit their requirements. The government hopes it will have created 3 million apprenticeships by 2020.
The conference gives an essential annual update on: legislatory changes, new technologies, best practice and site-experiences with existing technologies, and an insight into relevant research in biosolids and organic resources production and use.

“The Waste and Recycling Sector is a fundamental part of general industry and society. Regarded as one of the most hazardous, it is essential we ensure the safety of refuse workers and those we work around. I’ll be speaking about an industry and nationwide recognised initiative we have developed to raise awareness of reckless driving around refuse collection activities. Please attend so we can share and learn!” - Paul Wright, Group Health and Safety Director, Biffa
