If you are an employer with an annual salaries bill of £3m or more you’ll pay into the new Apprenticeship Levy. You’ll also want to know how best to recover this. Train your existing staff? Recruit new staff? Or a combination of both?
If you haven’t recruited, employed or trained apprentices before you might be surprised at just how complicated the process can be. There are more than 500 different types of apprenticeship, a myriad of rules and regulations, and something called ‘funding criteria’. You’ll need ‘fit for purpose’ job descriptions and training plans, and an approved training provider that delivers high quality teaching, learning and assessment. And, of course, you want a plan that enables you to fully recover the money that you have paid into the apprenticeship levy.
But if you’re not an expert in apprenticeships it can be hard to see the wood for the trees. Our free apprenticeship advisory is designed to help you design and implement a comprehensive apprenticeship plan, based on the sound expert knowledge that we have developed over the past eight years.
We’ll start by working through a detailed briefing with you .. and yes, it’s free and without any obligation.
