The aim of a modern apprenticeship programme is to produce adaptable, multi-skilled staff who can meet the needs of your business in the present and future.
Employing a Modern Apprentice means making a commitment to invest in their learning and personal development. In return, the apprentice makes a commitment to work for the benefit of your organisation. This is formalised in an Individual Training Plan, which is signed by all parties.
APPRENTICESHIP LEVY- Since April 2017, employers operating within the UK who have an annual payroll exceeding £3m have been required to pay an apprenticeship levy. From time to time, funding initiatives resulting from the levy are avaailable from the government. Your account manager will keep you up to date with opportunities to access funding.
