Making the most of Apprenticeship Training
Whether your business is paying into the levy or not, apprenticeship training is more comprehensive and more financially attractive than ever before. There are now over 200 registered apprenticeship standards covering an enormous range of skills ranging from entry level to Masters Degree level.
What can be a challenge for employers is to identify which training provider to work with and which apprenticeship standard to offer; there are more than 2,600 individual training providers registered with the Education and Skills Funding Agency to deliver apprenticeships.
ApprenticeLink helps you to identify what training would add the most direct value to your individual business needs and then select and utilise the best training providers for each apprenticeship standard. Our team will guide you through from start to finish, whether that is finding and training your first ever apprentice or building a branded training suite for your organisation. We also work with companies that have well established apprenticeship programmes, to identify areas of growth and account manage their levy spend.
We will take you through a quick step by step process to identify the apprenticeship options available to you and which would benefit your organisation effectively.
There is NO charge to you for using ApprenticeLink from start to finish. Our costs are covered by the training providers
We are delighted to announce a partnership with The West Midlands Combined Authority – ApprenticeLink will support them in gifting levy funds to businesses across the West Midlands for Apprenticeship Training – click here for more details
