An Apprentice’s view

Whilst completing my BTEC Level 3 in Business Administration through NTG Training, I can confirm that my assessor was very approachable as when been allocated specific units to be completed ahead of future meetings at the company I was working at. If I was unsure on specific questions or topics I would have a go of answering them myself with the assistance of course materials provided and the internet before emailing my assessor for her approval. I would receive her responses and suggestions by email almost immediately or the next working day. If I found that I was unable to complete tasks ahead of future meetings I would inform my assessor before-hand and we would work out Action Plans at our meetings to ensure completion of tasks on time. With having a minor disability I consider my assessor to be very patient and understanding whilst communicating with her and if I was unsure what was said it would be simplified in plain English.

We work with levy employers across a range of industries to guide them through the process and ensure that they are getting the most value out of the funds allocated, to either develop staff or for recruiting an apprentice.

The apprenticeship levy which was introduced in May 2017 has affected the way apprenticeships are funded. If you are an employer with a wage bill of more than 3 Million you will be required to automatically pay into the Levy and utilise training for your employees or hire of new apprentices.

Effectively increase your businesses potential

A strong focus on customer service within any business is critical. The first impression to a prospective customer is often reflected through your staff. If your employees who are dealing with customers do not have the appropriate skills to engage, problem solve or to handle difficult situations it could be detrimental to your business.

Earn while you learn

Finishing high school can be a daunting experience. There are so many options available, most young people want to get out into the working world but how do you get a job without experience?

Why hire an apprentice?

Apprenticeships offer many benefits to businesses across many sectors.

The Benefits of developing your workforce

When you find a need within your business that requires filling, the first point of call for most is to create a job spec with the view to hire someone for that new position. Why not give someone within your team the opportunity to develop the skills that are required for your business needs?

The Apprenticeship Levy and how it affects your business

Apprenticeships are a significant and influential part of the UK’s economy. The Government has set a goal to achieve 3 million active apprenticeships by 2020. To enable them to strive towards this mission, there will be an introduction of an apprenticeship levy which will be implemented on the 6th April 2017 and will affect the way apprenticeships are funded.
