ApprenticeLink – connecting employers with training

ApprenticeLink from ResourceBank is a unique service that supports organisations to utilise Apprenticeship training most effectively.

At ApprenticeLink, our mission is to educate and encourage businesses to see the benefit of Apprenticeships as a part of their ongoing HR solution. We have 12 years’ experience of working with apprenticeship employers, training providers, colleges and sector skills councils, and we connect employers with the best Apprenticeship Training providers for their industry.

It is crucial for organisations to take Apprenticeships seriously and continue to grow by offering comprehensive training to their staff, as well as bringing in Apprentices to help shape the future of the company.

The question is no longer of being able to afford apprenticeship training, but rather a question of "Can we afford not to?"

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
