Inprint 48

In this issue of Inprint we look at the implications of the past 12 months for print, and also looking ahead to get prepared for 2017, focusing particularly on Apprenticeship Reform.

Following Brexit in June 2016, we assess what sterling's decline means for UK printing.

Pursuing the same subject, we explore what post-Brexit distributors and agents can do to help our members to trade with the rest of the world (one of the confident messages from UK PLC following the decision to leave Europe), and ensure they are well-informed on the legal implications.

We also report on the outcomes of our post-Brexit survey, which researches the effect this momentous decision has had on UK print businesses.

Printing Outlook highlights how print is battling to defy pessimistic forecasts.

This issue looks at how we can better influence Government on behalf of print, and covers our submission to the Treasury, prior to their Autumn Statement, reminding them how important the printing industry is as an economic contributor.

On the same vein, we introduce our new Public Affairs Advisor Carys Davis, who shares her vision for the BPIF's lobbying efforts.

In 2017, a complete Apprenticeship Reform will be taking place, with mandatory employer contribution, changes in Government funding and new trailblazer standards being introduced. We offer an introduction to the three parts of apprenticeship reform.

Finally, congratulations to all the winners of the British Book Design and Production Awards. The entries this year were superb, and showcased an industry that continuously innovates, pushes the boundaries and embraces new technologies to achieve stunning results.
