What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are a great way to train and empower your employees with cutting edge, specialised training.

Apprenticeships combine on-the-job training with classroom learning giving your employees the foundation knowledge and first-hand experience to build their skills, whether they are existing members of staff or new employees to the team. There are many benefits of investing in your staff through quality training; they become motivated, bring fresh and innovative skills and knowledge to your business and are more likely to stay with an employer who has invested in them.

Apprenticeship Levy

Apprenticeships are a great way to train and empower your employees with cutting edge, specialised training.

In April 2017, the way the government funds apprenticeships in England changed. Some employers will be required to contribute to a new apprenticeship levy, and there will be changes to the funding for apprenticeship training for all employers. The apprenticeship levy requires all employers operating in the UK, with a pay bill over £3million each year, to make an investment in apprenticeships.

Employers can benefit from this investment by training apprentices using both standard and trailblazer frameworks. The guidance provides information on how the apprenticeship levy will work, and how its worked since it was introduced on 6 April 2017. It also explains the principles that apprenticeship funding and the levy has operated since April 2017, whether employers pay the levy, or not.

Employers can find out more about the benefits apprenticeships can bring to employer’s organisation and about the way apprenticeships are being reformed, in our vision for apprenticeship. The reforms include giving employers the opportunity to add to the new apprenticeship standards already available by developing standards that meet their precise needs.
