How to Join
Benefits of joining the WTPN range from networking, collaboration and the sharing of best practice to workshops and being represented at key regional stakeholder meetings.
With the radical changes in Apprenticeships, the Govt’s drive for 3m Apprenticeship starts by 2020, devolution of the Adult Skills budget and the Networks increased partnerships with schools, Business and stakeholder Groups, there’s never been a better time to join a longstanding, successful network that has a history of working together to achieve great regional results.
Network membership for those organisations delivering training and education through Govt funded programmes (including Levy employer training providers) and qualification bodies is £1000 per year.
Membership starts in September and payments are on a pro-rata basis if you join after September.
Associate membership for smaller ancillary service providers is £500 per year (Associate members do not have voting rights).
