We can recommend programmes to suit the skill gaps and attributes of your business.
In 2017, the government announced the Apprenticeship Levy. The levy requires all employers operating in the UK, with a pay bill over £3 million each year, to invest in Apprenticeships.
If your pay bill is over £3 million you
are required to pay 0.5% into a levy pot which you can then spend on Apprenticeship training. You will then get a government allowance of £15,000 towards this and then a 10% top up on your final amount.
20% off the job training
All apprentices have to undertake 20% off the job training time during an apprenticeship programme. This is learning which is done outside of the normal day to day environment, and is key to achieving the qualification. Examples of training include:
- Teaching of theory (learning, lectures, simulations).
- Practical training (On the job). Shadowing current staff (experienced members).
- Learning support and time spent writing assessments.
