AELP is delighted to welcome VWV as a patron member from January 2018.
VWV is an award-winning commercial law firm with offices located in London, Watford, Bristol and Birmingham. The firm provides the full range of legal services to businesses, both large and small, with a strong focus on client commitment and delivering real value-added solutions.
VWV's responsibility as a patron will include providing free legal support to members and ensuring that essential AELP documents, such as the apprenticeship training model contracts for levy and non-levy funded employers, are kept up to date with the latest legislation. The existing model contracts are in the final stages of being updated to bring them into line with the latest ESFA Rules and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The updated model documents will be made available to all AELP members free of charge over the forthcoming weeks.
As part of their ongoing commitment, VWV are also developing a dedicated portal to provide AELP members with 24/7 access to the latest versions of the model documents, as well as other useful legal resources, all in one place.
VWV is also pleased to offer AELP members a free legal helpline, details of which are below.
Managing Partner, Simon Heald, commented on the appointment:
