'Changes to IR35 and potential implication for Career Practitioners' (Free Webinar)

With the continuing growth of freelance career work, the little known IR35 rule seeks to stop so -called 'disguised employment'. Simply put, the IR35 is legislation designed to stop workers fraudulently claiming to be 'contractors' to claim tax benefits. However, from April 2020, the IR35 rule will be extended from the public to the private sector. This will have implications for small businesses who work work for organisations as contractors but who effectively carry out the same work as an employee. It will require such businesses to have payment of work to to be paid through a payroll system. Further information about these changes can be found at https://www.gov.uk/topic/business-tax/ir35. In this webinar, Becky Marshall and Jayne Egginton will review what IR35 is all about and its implications for small businesses. They will also answer any questions you may have. Becky is a freelance careers adviser and CDI member. Jayne Egginton brings a wealth of experience in this area and is Director and Solicitor of Legal Services at Vantage Legal Protect.

Career Education, Information, Advice and Guidance - A webinar to engage and support school-college Governors (Free Webinar)

School and college governors have a vital role to play in ensuring national guidelines are followed and standards achieved. We can plan the most effective programme of careers education and guidance that hits all agreed benchmarked standards – as outlined in the Statutory Guidance, Gatsby Benchmarks and Quality in Careers Standard - but if we cannot implement it effectively and with fidelity, it will only have limited impact. These 2x1-hour webinars are designed to help school and college governors gain further insights into the value and significant benefits that careers related programmes provide. They will enable governors to better support school and college staff to review current careers education and guidance planning and provision in their institution. They will also assist governors to consider ways to help senior management teams to develop and implement a clear strategic and operational plan, highlighting careers activities, in line with the new guidance.
