Apprenticeship Training Benefits
Understand the benefits apprenticeship training can have on your business and the importance of investing in your staff.
Why Hire an Apprentice?
Apprenticeships are designed with leading industry experts to make sure that the training offers the best fit to meet your business needs. Our Apprentices complete training planned around your business needs which allows you to recruit and develop your future workforces in line with your company culture and specialities.
Apprenticeships deliver for businesses and help them grow by:
- Reducing training and recruitment costs
- Increasing productivity and your bottom line
- Developing a skilled, motivated and qualified workforce
- Improving customer service results
- Providing a financial return on investment.
Our Apprenticeships are not only designed for new staff members, but existing employees can also complete apprenticeship programmes to develop their skills and progress within your company.

Free Recruitment Service
We offer a free recruitment service designed to deliver the best talent matched to the specific job requirements. We will work with you to identify the skills, attitudes, and competencies you expect from the potential apprentice. We will then create and advertise the role on your behalf and screen each candidate prior to submitting to you for final review. We will support you throughout the entire recruitment process.
Apprenticeship Funding – Levy and Non-Levy
We work with Levy and Non-Levy paying companies in all sectors and can help you plan and organise your apprenticeship funding.
If you are an employer who has a UK pay bill exceeding £3M you will be required to pay an apprenticeship levy of 0.5% of your total annual amount which will be payable to the HRMC through the pay as you earn system (PAYE). Employers who are required to pay the levy will have access to funds they have paid in via a new online portal called the Digital Apprenticeship Service (DAS). They will also receive a 10% top-up from the Government to their total monthly contributions in England. Any training must be provided through an accredited provider.
If you are an employer who has a UK pay bill of less than £3M you will contribute just 5% of the cost of apprenticeship training and the government will ‘co-invest’ by paying the remaining 95 percent. Businesses who have less than 50 employees won’t pay anything if they employ apprentices under the age of 19, and will receive a £1,000 payment.
Off the Job Training
It is now a requirement for an Apprentice to spend 20% their time at work completing off the job learning. This is the equivalent of a day a week. We work with you to ensure that this time is planned in effectively with suitable training courses, online learning and workshops mapped throughout the Apprenticeship to deliver positive outcomes that will have a real impact on your business goals.
