Home | Apprenticeships | For Employers
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. We offer a free training needs analysis to identify training solutions for your business. Contact us to discuss how we can help you to recruit, develop and retain your staff.
An apprenticeship is a work-based training programme designed around the needs of employers, which can lead to nationally recognised qualifications. Apprenticeships at BCoT do have entry criteria and each candidate will be assessed to ascertain their current level to ensure suitability onto the chosen apprenticeship programme.Apprenticeships are available for newly recruited staff and existing employees and there is no maximum age restriction. They help to refresh, enhance and develop your workforce to meet the growing needs of your business. Upon completion of an apprenticeship, employees not only achieve a nationally recognised qualification but will have gained the skills and knowledge required to make a positive impact within your organisation.

They are also given an employer incentive payment of £1,000 over two installments for training 16-18 year olds.
