Apprenticeship Programme

Workforce Development

The programme provides a pathway to Government funded nationally accredited Business Apprenticeship programmes delivering workplace learning and skills development to maintain and GROW your business.

High quality training is available within Accountancy, Business Administration, Customer Service, Contact Centre Operations, Employment Related Services, I.T. User Skills, Retail, Providing Financial Services, Team Leading & Management

Apprenticeships will be tailored to suit the needs of your business with training and assessments carried out on site for maximum efficiency and funding can also be used to transfer existing staff for work place skills development to gain nationally recognised qualifications (NVQ). Minimum disruption to your business with all training and development on site to future proof your business for competitive advantage

Government funding support means your business benefits from:

  • Incentive paid to your business of £1,500 for each of the first 10 Apprentices – subject to qualifying criteria
  • Employers who take on a 16-18 year old apprentice only pay their salary. The Government will fund their training.
  • The National Minimum Wage for Apprentices applies (£2.65 per hour) although many employers exercise the option to pay more.
  • Initial recruitment, enrolment and support of Apprentices at no cost to you
  • Recognition of nationally accredited training & certification (NVQ)
