Business Benefits
Apprenticeships are an exciting option for both apprentice and employer, here are some benefits for you as an employer:

  • you can adapt their training according to the needs of your business
  • they’re motivated to learn new skills
  • you can expand and upskill your workforce
  • you can employ apprentices at different levels, from school leavers and university graduates, to people who want to further their careers or change career direction completely.
  • you can hire someone new or upskill an existing employee.
  • as an employer, you can get funding from the government to help pay for apprenticeship training.

Free recruitment service
When you choose us as your training  provider we include our recruitment service for free.  One of the key questions is ‘What is your job description for the apprenticeship role?’ our recruitment specialist can help review this with you to ensure if fits with your business  needs, the apprenticeship standard and ultimately the apprentice. We advertise the role on the apprenticeship service, with our JobCentre and other partner networks as well as our own social media channels.

New and existing staff
One of the common myths around apprenticeships is that are only for 16-18 year olds, in fact there is no age limit for an apprentice.  This gives you the option to either recruit a new apprentice or to enroll and existing member of your team onto an apprenticeship.   There is eligibility criteria for each of the apprenticeships, our experts will chat it through with you.

Government financial support means for many businesses recruiting and training an apprentice is more cost-effective than hiring skilled staff on a higher salary.   If you’re a small business with a salary bill of less than £3million, the government will cover up to 95% of the training cost.   Above this level, your company will already be paying the apprenticeship levy to the government, so you can use your levy pot to cover your training needs.   We also work with organisations or ‘gift’ their levy pots to SMEs to help with apprenticeships.
