How can you take advantage of the new Apprenticeship Levy?

With total of 2.4 million workers recently classed by their employers as not being fully proficient in their current job, the government has committed to three million apprenticeship starts by summer 2020. If you’ve identified skills gaps in your managers or HR professionals, we can help you to upskill them using the funding available through the new Apprenticeship Levy.

What we offer

Through long standing partnerships with the CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) and ILM (Institute of Leadership and Management), we can help you plan your organisational strategy for apprenticeships, so you meet the apprenticeship levy funding requirements.

All business needs are different, so we can work with you across the following options:

– Lead provider:
We can take charge of delivering the programme to your employees and provide full responsibility for all the required reporting and administration.

– Employer provider:
If you’re an employer apprenticeship provider, we can work with you to help you to deliver your apprenticeship programmes. We are flexible, so can offer to deliver the full HR or Leadership & Management apprenticeship qualification, which also includes the needs analysis, progress monitoring, formative assessments, and the preparation for end-point assessment. Alternatively, we can work with you so you can deliver certain elements yourself, based on your business capabilities. You chose and we will support you with our expertise.

– Other providers
If you’re an apprenticeship provider, we can work as part of your network to provide you with our expert HR or Leadership and Management content. We will also provide full support to help you meet your employer’s apprenticeship needs.
