More and more employers are engaging in apprenticeships to develop and expand their businesses. Apprenticeships are available for newly recruited staff as well as existing employees. They help to refresh, enhance and develop your workforce to meet the growing needs of your business. This can either be employing a new member of staff as an apprentice or training existing employees to develop new skills. With the Government focus on growth, as well as the introduction of the apprenticeship levy, there has never been a better time to get involved.
An apprenticeship enables individuals to study for work-based qualifications that are designed to meet the requirements of learners and employers alike.

Small employers (up to 50 employees) training 16-18 year olds can claim full funding from the government. They are also given an employer incentive payment of £1,000 over two instalments.
Larger employers (with a paybill over £3 million) can use their Apprenticeship Levy.
All other employers who don’t pay the Levy are expected to contribute 5% of the cost of the training with the Government paying the other 95%.
