Join us and First Intuition over breakfast to learn more about apprenticeships and how they can benefit your business. Gain a better understanding of how the apprenticeship programme works for both employer and trainee, as well as hear about the outgoing financial incentives and the final deadlines to claim.

In addition, First Intuition will share tips and advice on what employers can do to ease this cohort of new starters into the workplace following the impacts of the pandemic. Guests will have the unique opportunity to ask questions and hear the perspectives of an employer, trainee, and well-established training provider who use the apprenticeship programme.

The event is open to any employer wanting to learn more about apprenticeships and what they can bring to a business, anyone who would like up to date information about on final deadlines for outgoing incentives, and to those who are onboarding a new cohort of apprentices over the next couple of years.

Guest Presenters

Tim Howes: Tim has been involved in professional training for over 30 years, joining FI in 2019. In that time he has seen a seismic change in the provision of training in terms of delivery models and technology and the advent of apprenticeships with the more holistic view of professional development. A member of ICAEW, Tim has served the East Anglian District Society as President back in 2009/10 and continues to sit on the regional committee as the society’s Treasurer. A keen (very) amateur golfer and one time semi-professional Squash player, he enjoys time spent with family and enjoys good food, good beer and good company.

Peter Ellington: I set up Triple Bottom Line Accounting (TBLA) in 2009 following a long career in FTSE100 companies. I work mainly with our larger clients. I also develop new aspects of our business. As we grow I am helping the team to adapt to progressive ways of working. I aspire to be the leader, mentor, and coach that enables the team at TBLA to build a transformative accountancy practice.

Outside the office, you’ll find me teaching in the Norwich Business School on the MBA programme, Entrepreneurship, and Taxation. I graduated in 2021 from the Institute of Education, UCL as a Doctor in Education: Accounting Education. When I’m not working or teaching, I’m outdoors hiking or sailing.

Tatiana Blana: I completed an undergraduate degree in Finance and Banking in 2010 and a master’s degree in Accounting and Audit in 2012. I am currently studying towards an ACCA qualification to become a Certified Chartered Accountant. My role at TBLA involves performing various accounting tasks such as VAT Returns, Payroll, Self Assessments, Tax Returns and Statutory Accounts.

Outside the office, I love spending time with my family and reading my favourite books.
