SAIF Regional Meeting in Haydock

July 14, 2016   //   No Comments

SAIF Members in the North West are invited to join us at our Regional Meeting on 20th July at the Holiday Inn at Haydock.  Guest speaker will be Simon Galley of Preston’s College, who will be explaining the funeral apprenticeship scheme they are developing.  Preston’s College offers one of the first funeral apprenticeship schemes of its kind in the UK. SAIF is delighted to be working with the college as they develop the course. Apprenticeships allow small businesses to employ young people for one year. There is a financial incentive for employers provided by the government and the employer owns the decision on whether or not to retain the apprentice.

Also on the agenda will be:

  • Find out what’s affecting the funeral business – updates on emerging legislation on death certification and medical examiner reform
  • Seek advice on local issues affecting funeral directors
  • Discover what’s new at Golden Charter
  • Find out about funeral related products and services
